It was great to visit Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s cottage in Nether Stowey, Somerset.
He wrote the poem ‘Frost at Midnight’ in this room.
The first 3 lines are particularly interesting for weather readers:
The Frost Performs its secret ministry,
Unhelped by any wind. The owlet’s cry
Came loud- and hark, again! loud as before.Frost at Midnight by S. T. Coleridge
Frost is most likely on clear, windless nights.
These are also the nights we are most likely to hear owls.
