The teacher, at the end of day
Looks to the setting sun
With clasping hands she softly asks
“Dear God, what have we done?”

For anglers in spring it is always unlucky to see single magpies ; but two may always be regarded as a favourable omen. And the reason is, that in cold and stormy weather one magpie alone leaves the nest in  search of food, the other remaining sitting with the eggs or the young ones ; but when two go out together, it is only when the weather be mild and warm, and favourable for fishing.

The clachan yill had made me canty,
I was na fou, but just had plenty;
I stacher`d whiles, but yet too tent aye
To free the ditches;
An` hillocks, stanes, an` bushes, kenn`d eye
Frae ghaists an` witches.

Walk on a RAINbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty.There is a way out of every dark mist, over a RAINbow trail.
