Night's Storm - Poem by Dave Dafes

When night, blanket the earth in fierce darkness,
As all souls lie in sweet repose's nest;
The wind began to rise
And roar from yonder shore,
A thick pall blots out night's candles,
Left the skies in hideous pitch,
Specks of dust flew about the horizon;
The trees swayed, their branches cracked
Filled the air with rustling leaves,
The curly waters soar,
As roofs rattle and bang,
None that can move was still,
Then flashed across the canopy of stars,
In a deafen blast; heaven's artillery,
Crisscross'd the blinding night,
That Gaia quaked she did,
Then came down the rain in silvery light;
To quench her thirst, ‘n' cleans'd our gloom and filthy scums,
Blest we all with soothing rest,
Then saw I a light from yonder shine,
And then came the dawn.
