The Havoc Greets Our Eye Sight

The storm raged in fury all night
in morning's light the damage plain
the havoc greets our eye  sight 

Houses knocked down by its might
ruins scattered on floodplain
the storm raged in fury all night

Trees uprooted some taken flight
strewn like firewood behind remain
the havoc greets our eye sight

Just like lovers full of contrite
they are parting bringing them pain
the storm raged in fury all night

Breaking their hearts in the daylight
their home in ruins drove them insane
the havoc greets our eye sight

Nowhere to live, lost their birthright
their home, their castle, their domain 
The storm raged in fury all night
the havoc greets our eye sight

    Heart aching! A terrible thing for anyone to suffer, a death before death situation! Marvelously written, vivid and captivating!

    and it strikes, the loss of homes is devastating, so much loss, at times like this I wish I wasn't aware of the news there is so much going on ... Linda
