MOUNTAIN STORM, by            
First Line: The rain drags dripping finger-tips
Last Line: Rattles down the gorge.
Subject(s): Storms

The rain drags dripping finger-tips
Across the roof
And taps out sharp, staccato notes
Upon the window pane.
Then, clutching futilely along the
Window's edge, reluctantly
Sinks into little pools beside the wall.
A damp-drenched wind chants poignant threnodies
And lightning in blue darts of flame
Leaps madly in skeletonic dance
Along the ridge,
While thunder like the giant beat
Of some barbaric tom-tom
Rattles down the gorge.
