Subject(s): Storms


I love a storm, yes, I, who all my life
Have courted harmony, sought quietude;
Who cringe at every cruel word and rude,
Avoid unpleasantness, hate brawl and strife
And all harsh scenes with noise and discord rife.
Yet awed, I unafraid, exultant stand
And view with ecstasy the storm-god's hand
That devastates and spills with ruthless knife.
Some primal impulse answers to the storm;
My spirit welcomes in the threatening air
The conquering force it lacks but fain would share.
In elemental strength it sees the form
Of God, who glories in the conqueror's song
And bids faint hearts have courage and be strong.
