Thick oppressive sultriness all day
Then  cool breezes, a cloud signals
The sails of a fighting Armada, 
With massed grey galleons 

Swelling with threatening guns  -
The flashing of their watery cannon beats
Their terrifying cacophony
In the cross-trees and shivering  sheets  -

Hurled balls of rain, rain, rain
So thick the air is opaque;
Rain without end, Noah’s rain,
Making deck drain and scupper shake

Riddling the sea with bullet-hole spray.
Now  empty cannon fall still and silent:
The Armada has drifted away.
The air is dry and clear and spent.
