The Stormy Sea

The waves they crashed

the thunder called

its wild, loud call

to me.

The lightning struck

the clouds they raced

across the stormy sea.

The seagulls called

out to the tide

the tide called out to me,

and I? I ran for my life

away from the stormy sea.

The waves licked 'round my ankles

I begged, for my life did I plead

"Please don't take me away!" I cried,

"Release me, stormy sea!"

But the sea did not reply

and then ran away from me

I fell to my knees with a cry of relief

safe from the stormy sea.
