Candlemas Day

If Candlemas Day be sunny and bright,
winter will have another flight;
if Candlemas Day be cloudy with rain,
winter is gone, and won't come again.

or ...

If Maries purifieng daie,
Be cleare and bright with sunnie ray,
The frost and cold shalbe much more,
After the feast than was before.
