Part 2 Of Child Frightened By A Thunderstorm

So a couple days ago, I told you guys about a poem that we read in class. At the end of the post, I said that I had written my own weather poem that I will share. Here is the poem I wrote about a tornado:

 

The dark wizard of the sky,

Waves his hands of thunder.

He conjures a beast from the depths.

♦      ♦      ♦

A spinning swirling mess circles though the town,

grabbing buildings and swatting them to far-off places.

Parading through the village by Master’s will alone.

He would feel bad, but Maser said “NO!”

“I made you with my own hands,

for I am Weather himself, and you must do what I say!”

Helpless, Tornado sadly obeys.

And silently says “I’m sorry,” for every life he takes.

UNTIL FINALLY THE SPELL IS BROKEN,

AND TORNADO DISSIPATES IN THE DUST.

Now, I also said there would be a contest. I want you to write your own weather poem, and send it to me. You may be featured on YouTube or on Kiranmathew!

Contest Rules:

~Cannot contain inappropriate or harsh language

~Must be your own work

~Must have a parent’s permission (if under 18)

~Must be about a certain form of weather

REMEMBER:

This poem can be free verse.
