(Another childhood poem...quite old!)

Grey-black clouds above me roll
with a loud and fearsome tone --
huge dark boulders of the skies,
carved from granite-stone.
Forked bolts of lightning flash,
points just above my head --
sparks kindled by the clash of spears
whose owners long are dead.
Glistening drops of moisture fall
with a silence-shattering sound--
drops that are tears of souls whose fears
must, and ever shall, abound.
The piercing wind-sound of the fury
screams an ultimatum in my ear --
it is insane shrieking from a witch
who fills mankind with fear.
Shaken by this awful show
of mighty forces in the night,
I, in haste, with humble mien,
retreat within in fright.

    Vivid, frightening images...all the things thunderstorms of all kinds are made of, wrapped into one...Very well written.

    I absolutely enjoyed this free verse which is what I think a true example of free verse should be. (never could master it) very well done Leo with an exceptional command of the imagery and imagination making for a great poem.
