Weerspreuken – Weather Lore

Vriezende januari, natte februari,
droge maart, regen in april,
is de boeren hunnen wil.

If January has never a drop, the barn will need an open prop
If in February there be no rain, it is neither good for hay nor grain.
March damp and warm, will do the farmer much harm.
April cold and wet, fills the barns best yet.
Cold May and windy, barn filleth up finely.

Als februari de muggen zwermen,
moet men in maart de oren wermen.

When gnats dance in February the husbandman becomes a beggar.

Februari kil en nat,
koren in ’t vat.

If February give much snow
A fine summer it doth foreshow.
