Red Sky: The Good Shepherd and I

Jesus, the good shepherd, once said:
'When it is evening, ye say,
It will be fair weather:
For the sky is red.
And in the morning,
It will be foul weather today:
For the sky is red and lowering.'

Evening red and morning gray
Are the signs of a bonny day.

Evening red:
'Shepherd's delight, '
Daddy said.

That is to say,
'Red sky at night,
Shepherd's delight.'

Evening gray and morning red
Bring down rain on the farmer's head.

Morning red:
'Shepherd's warning, '
Daddy said.

That is to say,
'Red sky in the morning,
Shepherd's warning.'

Evening gray and morning red
Brought down rain on my father's head.

My father, a seasoned farmer,
Could discern the face of the sky.
O Lord, my shepherd, so can I.
