This poem has been written about the devastating floods that we suffered around Cumbria, NorthWest England, thankfully we were okay, but a lot of neighbouring areas are still trying to recover from all the floods in December, January and February. But as always whatever happens the community always come together to do whatever they can to help everyone. 

The rain lashed down Puddles of water getting deeper The sea rolled in fury Smashing against the rocks Waves leaped over the wall As the wind bellowed Howling through the streets The storm raged And roared Its temper flaring As the water raised higher Again and again Soaking the ground Already drenched So much devastation But the torrent carried on As the gust whipped up Thrashing all in sight The hullabaloo was frightening Bridges collapsing Buildings flooding Trees broken So much havoc That seems relentless But stronger we stand Against the storm
