Treasure Island

And the Hurricane Hit...


The hurricane has struck our town again,
With great wind-speed and lashing downpour rain;
We never thought, it could come so early;
But Nature has allowed it unfairly;
Much flora, fauna could take punishment;
God, spare us please from this new ravishment!

The storm had cleared off by the dawn of day!
Thank God, the damage was lesser en way;
Good that God tethered Nature furious;
Good that the loss was not lives precious;
We praise you, God and sing a grateful hymn
Of heart-felt thanks for making life less grim!

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
