Safe Inside - Poem by Margaret Cox

The dark clouds gather with a heavy threat
I guess many people are about to get wet
A menacing rumble as the light disappears
And a flash of lightening everyone fears.

Gentle raindrops now a raging waterfall
A mighty power unleashed to remind us all
That nature can be harsh as well as kind
And frightening thoughts crowd the mind.

Safely inside, watching with wonder and awe
Listening to the pounding against a closed door
Rolling clouds roar and seem to cry in pain
Releasing the torrent and expelling the rain.

As drum rolls soften and gradually fade away
The darkness slowly lifts and trees gently sway
Petals unfurl as flowers tentatively lift their heads
And sheltering tiny animals shyly leave their beds.

It is easy to forget as the welcome light returns
But there must be a lesson that everyone learns
To respect the might of Nature, but also enjoy
As it teases this World, playing with it like a toy.
