The Day Turned Dark

IMAGE FOR REPRESENTATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

The day turned dark, the winds got wild,
Commoving feelings, numbing souls
On India’s hills where peeps are mild
With a nature that warms men’s wholes.

The sun grew white, as white as milk,
Beside it hung the sulking moon;
The sky shamed by brewed storms, their ilk
Did let out cries when it was noon.

The rain was strong, it decried pain
Witnessed by folks that bided there;
It fell on roofs and not in vain,
For winds were bested, men made bare.

I saw the trees without no leaf,
Beheld were darkened times as well;
My heart then overwhelmed with grief
Did sink deep; no thoughts could it quell.

Ten days have passed, and I await
A sun that shines, a moon that beams;
Will each hill, rill, and frozen strait
Buy the farm as it to me seems?

The men now dead shall wake up soon
Upon lands that might warm their forms;
They’ve seen the bane; it’s time for boon;
It’s time to bid adieu to storms.
