I love the wind and the rain

I love the wind and the rain
When they come blasting in together
In the Scottish late autumn
That threatens to batter straight into winter

But to watch it from the warm indoors
That’s the way to sense its rampant power
Its soaking weight
And its irreverent priestly status amongst all
Our varied forms of weather

It‘s this combination of hurtling wind and thick rain
Which more than any other source
Has scoured and carved our precious landscape.
