related to "The dancers rise and fa', " about the aurora borealis, the Northern Lights:

here's a funny thing! We have a Mudcat thread for a song, written and published in England, called "The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen."

The first verse of the song speaks of
"heavenly dancers, Merry dancers in the sky," and an earlier line makes clear what this refers to:
"Go see the Northern Lights my boy!"

Funny that the Dictionary for the Scots Language took absolutely no notice of this popular song lyric.
