The Rainbow

: Popular Rhymes And Nursery Tales

Rainbow i' th' morning

Shipper's warning;

Rainbow at night

Shipper's delight.

This, in one form or other, is a most common weather proverb. The

present version was heard in Essex.

If there be a rainbow in the eve,

It will rain and leave;

But if there be a rainbow in the morrow,

It will neither lend nor borrow.
