Simon WIlliams and Susan Taylor have joined forces to produce an elegant collection of poems based on meteorlogical observation. spiced with occasional touches of love and tenderness. Some of their more startling images will change the way readers percieve the world, as in 'Mist of the Dart' where "the river vapourises as if it's making tea and 'covers like a Balaclava, not a cap." The Weather House is both fresh and charming - and ripe for performance.

It’s a Tuesday morning
teeming with umbrellas,
the street outside more wet than high
and the daintiest of these umbrellas
come into Thrive Café
to fold themselves as flowers will,
when rain rains hundreds and thousands.
A woodland spring picture in here
on the inside of the outside wall
works like a painted-on window,
reminder of where bluebells
on the tables were picked,
how the trees in newly furbished leaf
are at one with this kind of downpour,
driven to shake their boughs in the gale
and tender about them
their everyday multiplication of green.
