Sailor's Weather  Rhymes

  Avoiding bad weather at sea, is not always possible, here is some guidance. 




Wind and Weather 

When the wind shifts against the sun,

Trust it not , for back it will run.

Mackerel sky and mare's tails,

Make lofty ships carry low sails


The evening red and the morning grey

Are sure signs of a fine day,

But the evening grey and the morning red,

Makes the sailor shake his head.

When rain comes before the wind,

Halyards, sheets and braces mind,

But when wind comes before rain,

Soon you make sail again.


If clouds are gathering thick and fast,

Keep sharp look out for sail and mast,

But if they slowly onward crawl,

Shoot your lines, nets and trawl.

Red sky at night sailor's delight,

Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning



Long foretold, long last,

Short notice soon past,

Quick rise after low,

Sure sign of a stronger blow.

When the glass falls low,

Prepare for a blow;

When it slowly rises high,

Lofty canvas you may fly.


At sea with low and falling glass,

Soundly sleeps a careless ass,

Only when its high and rising,

Truly rests a careful wise one.
