Nature's Wrath Again!


Oh Lord, why has this happened?
Once again nature’s wrath
Was taken out on the people
So many were in its path.

Everything they own is gone
Just lucky to walk away
They must start all over once again
On this sad unfathomable day.

We wish we could do something
That a new hope could begin
But there will be a ‘next time’
We’ll see nature’s wrath again!

    Your poem reminded me of recent tornados. Nature' wreath and nature's bounties- cycle of life and death! (Report) Reply

    Very true, sad but true. We have no control over so many things, weather is just one that harms so many at one time. Nice job (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
