Weather This Storm


Day turns dark, turns cloudy

hail begins to pelt

followed by a torrent rain

frozen pellets now melt.

Thunder crackles in the sky

vibrating beneath my feet

Northern winds blow colder now

rains turn into sleet.

Lightning flashes electric bolts

raising hairs upon my neck

everyone runs for cover,

but I think, 'What the heck!'

I've dealt with nastier furies,

body's been battered by every form,

walk slow, pull my hood up over

for I can surely weather this storm!
