New York Is Shaking

Here I am in my fortress
Nervously glued to my TV
Listening to constant news
About that mean girl Sandy!
Unable to help anyone,
I feel powerless and sad
While I can hear loud and clear
The ferocious wind
Trying to break my windows!

Scared I am, I confess,
Worried about loved ones
And everybody else!
Gusty winds persist
Accompanied by heavy rains
Seem to swallow our city!

Total darkness can occur anytime
Due to power failures everywhere
In downtown Manhattan,
East and West sides
From river to river
Sandy can be felt!
While garbage cans flying
Decorate the isolated streets!

Here I am in my fortress
Afraid to fall asleep
While this mean girl Sand
Is torturing us!
Must remained awake
Praying to the Lord
Hoping tomorrow will be ok!
Now, I must keep the World informed!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
