FORECAST

'Rain - some
of it
heavy

more particularly
in the glens
of Scotland

where it may
fall as
sleet'

the sound
of calligrammes

The poem about the awful weather in Scotland is rounded off with a reference to Apolloniare's calligrammes and, in particular, his famous version of rain where the poem's words are in the shape of falling rain.
