Himself must either hold or drive.

A SWARM of bees in May

VEOW mussent sing a' Sunday,

I Becaze it is a sin,
But yeow may sing a' Monday

Till Sunday cums agin.

M ONDAY'S bairn is fair of face,
TV Tuesday's bairn is full of grace,
Wednesday's bairn is full of woe,

Thursday's bairn has far to go,
Friday's bairn is loving and giving,
Saturday's bairn works hard for its living,
But the bairn that is born on the Sabbath dav
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

T For want of the shoe, the horse was lost;
For want of the horse, the rider was lost;

For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost;
And all from the want of a horseshoe nail.

M ARCH winds and April showers
IVI Bring forth May flowers.
