Poem – This storm has a name

This storm has a name


All night long the wind howled over the hill,

Voice of a thousand creatures raging, grieving.

Fury beyond answer, this end of world

Wolf wail to bring down trees, take roof

And power, take sleep and shelter.

All petty triumphs, bragged by day

Are thin sheets about the body, penetrated

By a wind that stops for nothing,

Cares for nothing but its own force.

Keening a lullaby to oblivion,

Promising no tomorrow.
