Examples of Rhyme or Poem Mnemonics

Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Save February, with twenty-eight days clear,
And twenty-nine each leap year
Columbus sailed the ocean blue
In fourteen hundred ninety-two
 
I before E except after C
or when sounding like A
in neighbor and weigh
Red sky at night
Shepherd’s delight
Red sky in the morning
Shepherd’s warning

(Red sky shows dust in the air which shows high pressure, meaning good weather is coming. At dawn, red may mean dust meaning a storm is moving in from the west, or red may mean humidity, which may foretell rain.)

Rainbow in the morning
Travelers take warning
Rainbow at night
Travelers’ delight

(A rainbow in the morning would be visible in the west, so a storm is approaching. A rainbow in the evening means the storm has already passed from west to east.)
