The Storm
By Mary T. Hoffman

Darkness has fallen like a shroud,
The trees rustle restlessly;
Above the wind’s song strong and loud,
The thunder speaks ominously.

A stiff breeze marches across the land,
The trees continue their swishing and struggling,
The sky is lit by lightning’s hand,
But the thunder continues its warning.

(Written in the summer of 1954)
