This morning's Saturday Live on BBC Radio 4 ended with an item on clouds by Gavin Pretor-Pinney of the Cloud Appreciation Society.

CloudsClouds: That one looks like a horsey ...

Besides background music from David Bowie, singing Bertold Brecht's Remembering Marie A. (... there was a cloud my eyes dwelled long upon ...), Gavin selected the wonderful Cloudbusting, from Kate Bush's 1985 (was it really so long ago?) album, Hounds of Love. And not a single mention of Wordsworth.

Is this in an effort to say only good stuff? It's a bit, "Hello trees. Hello flowers... Hello clouds.", isn't it? Chizz, chizz, chizz. :-)
