Darkened clouds swirling in the sky above
Heavy rain pouring down making it hard to see
Umbrellas turn inside out are no use at all
The wind is blowing strong almost taking me.
People scatter finding safety from the storm
While dangerous lightening strikes near by
They watch as it strikes a nearby falling tree
While thunder and lightening blacken the sky.
Finally, finally wind is slowly calming down
Dark clouds scattering in the afternoon sky
No more the sound of ear piercing thunder
As I watch smiling faces on people passing by.
