: what is the meaning to the phrase: And the goose hung / hangs high.

The meaning of the phrase "the goose hangs high" is either that there's a goose hanging in the larder, or that things are going well. The fact that there's a goose hanging in the larder (drying out to preserve it) means that you'll have enough to eat this fall, or Christmas, and therefore things are good.
