The Earthquake - Poem by Billy Loving

Sudden quaking
As the earth begins shaking
House rumbles
As from her seat she stumbles
Which direction to run
Under the gun
Out of the house, she appears
Filled with confusion, she fears
Suddenness confounds
Neighbors all around
Fear in the air
All are aware
Quietness so profound
Not making any sound
Stopping so fast
How long did it last?
Everything is okay
As they go about their way
