The British are famously obsessed by the weather. We have a huge range of words to describe weather, the time of day, and the seasons. Clusters of regional words, many now fallen out of use, have been formed here into tiny poems tracing the arc of a day in 7 sections: Dawn, Mist, Wind, Ice, Sun, Rain, Dusk. The unfamiliar words, sounding as they do like strange language, provide a kind of spell and requite close attention.
