The Forecast



 
The sun was setting in the western sky
A sky which had taken on a scarlet hue
Many people looked forward with anticipation
Hoping the old saying would come true
 
For a red sky at night was said to give shepherds delight
For good weather on the morrow was expected
There was no weather forecast in days of old
Study of the clouds was the way weather patterns were detected
 
And when folk awoke to skies of grey
Or a sky showing red tints in the morning
They expected that bad weather was on its way
For a red sky at that time was known as the shepherd’s warning
 
The old saying invariably comes true
In forecasting what the weather will be
It might not be based on scientific evidence
But is usually as good as that on the radio or TV
