Dirty Days Hath September

(Grafitti from Keighley Workhouse, 1887)

Dirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
From January up to May,
The rain it raineth every day;
From May again until July,
There's not a dry cloud in the sky;
All the rest hath thirty-one
Without a blessed ray of sun;
And if any of them had two-and-thirty,
They'd be just as wet and dirty.

James Craven
