Katherine Sessor

(March 14,1990 / Virginia)

Midnight Storm

Pitter patter, pitter patter, hear the rain pour
Boom, crash, boom, hear the thunder roar
Flash! See the lightning shock the door

Tick tock, tick tock, the clock strikes midnight
Creek, creek, opens the door and on comes the light
It's your mother saying it's alright

'Oooh, Oooh, ' she sings you to sleep
In a dream you are drawn in deep
And now you are fast asleep

Drip drop, drip drop, the storm has moved on
You wake up with a stretch and a yawn
Out comes the sun and now it's dawn

    I hear this as a children's poem, and (having taught a lot of children in my time) that is not a criticism. I can imagine a young child being comforted by the message of this poem. The progress of the storm is described simply but in sequence, and the sounds are blended into it very skilfully. If you took it as a symbol, it could stand for the troubles of life, which may pass, like the storm, if you are reassured through them. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
