The Weather Cock / Aa Year Roon     by: Lindsey

I perch on ma pole
Aa year roon.
The weather changes here an there
I watched it an watched it
An this is whit I found...

I've seen that simmer can be hett
The simmer can be caal
I've see it aa on top o my pole.

The winter can be winny
The winter can be still
The winter is always caal
But aa the same it's brill.

You see for bein a weathercock
I've seen it aa through twice
Weather is surely a winnerfu thing
But bein a weathercock
I canna say it's nice!
