With eyes of calm and eerie green,
A peace which few have ever seen,
A peace so soon and irrevocably undone

The land about is torn apart,
Houses toppled and dark,
A sight ne’er to be unseen

A force of such great beauty,
A force of such great fear,
The storm past, again is drawing near

In shadows of forever,
The darkness soon to come,
This light will shine forever in the mind

The tortured hearts of those between of her wicked paths
Know now to fear Mother Nature’s scorn
This world although not of ash,
Asunder, it is clearly torn

The whirling winds return to us,
Cutting the serenity that never was.
