Red sky at night,
Sailor's delight.
Red sky at morning
Sailors take warning
Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.
Rain on the green grass
Rain on the hillside,
But not on me.

To kill a raven is to harm the spirit of King Arthur who visits the world in the form of a raven.

A wish made upon seeing the first robin in spring will come true - but only if you complete the wish before the robin flies away.

Ravens in Britain
Yep, that's an old belief in both Cornwall and Wales about Arthur returning as a raven (and thus it being unlucky to harm them).

Ravens have a very long connection to British kings going all the way back to Bran the Blessed, a giant-king from Welsh mythology. :~)
