Furious gusts fly through the sky,
Shaking boughs that creak and sigh.
Black Elms with stately might,
Struggle to win their age-old fight.
White lightning flashes across the landscape,
Leaving no secrets untold, letting nothing escape.
An angry god storms over the land,
The Universe quaking at his every command.
Piercing rain slants down to earth,
Sent by gods chuckling with careless mirth,
At the havoc they are creating.
