(For further information geese see Mystical WWW Mystic’s Menagerie).

Shall never lack money his debts to pay.’

Another English rural belief concerns the leaf, which if caught as it flutters to the ground between Michaelmas and Hallow’s Eve (October 31) will bring good fortune to that person during the following year.
