Hurricane Jude

Was really rude.
At the things in her path,
She looked and she laughed.
She roared and she raged
Like a lion in a cage.
Power cables, she tore down,
And she tossed things around.
She uprooted trees
With incredible ease.
She disrupted trains,
And buses and planes.
From the roofs, she tore tiles,
For miles and miles.
Some scaffolding fell,
And street lamps as well.
The sea chopped and churned.
Vehicles, she overturned.
Ferries were suspended.
Many bins were upended.
A car-port took flight:
Quite a frightening sight.
She was so strong
That she blew folk along.
As she twisted and turned,
She showed zero concern.
There were bangs and bashes;
There were clangs and clashes.
All through the night,
She unleashed her might.
She raged until dawn,
But was gone by the morn.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
