History

~ The Art of Painting by Johannes Vermeer

~

Monday for wealth, 

Tuesday for health,

Wednesday the best day of all;

Thursday for crosses,

Friday for losses,

Saturday no luck at all.

~

Monday’s child is fair of face, 

Tuesday’s child is full of grace,

Wednesday’s child is fill of woe,

Thursday child has far to go,

Friday’s child is loving and giving,

Saturdays child  works hard for a living;

and the child that’s born on the Sabbath day,

is fair and wise and good and gay.

~

Monday is Sunday’s brother, Tuesday is another; 

Wednesday you must go to church and pray,

Thursday is half-holiday; on Friday it is too late to begin to spin,

Then Saturday is half-holiday agen.
