The Tempest on the Moor

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

Clouds do gather over the hills
Wind churns up the grass and chills
The frigid grasp of Gods do thrill
Upon the lonely moor
Shadows in the sky are growing
As time and pace seem to be slowing
Hear the Gods' thunderous moaning
With sorrow ne'er felt before
The gaps inside the clouds are whitening
With the flashes of their static lightening
With crack and flash so frightening
As if the breaking of a door.
All and now it comes to quick
With this storm coming so electric
And the wind a coming hard and slick
In this tempest upon the moor

Hold your breath and bar your fears
As the rain now comes down falling near
The Gods water Earth now with Their tears
They are splashing upon the moor
With the wetting stone and rotting wood
To turn the dirt now into mud
Tread now carefully so you should
So you'll not slip on the floor
A drum roll on the path so trodden
Now soaking wet and water sodden
Prints now made there to be forgotten
With the many that trod before
Pools and lakes form in the fields
As the Gods their sorrows now revealed
The soil once solid now does yield
In this tempest upon the moor

Out the dark their comes a crack
And a tree with broken back
Broken by light as quick as that
With fire out every pore
The tree now stands among the dead
Its tenants now have gone and fled
Nought but flames upon its head
Then extinguished by tears once more
The wind causes other branches shaking
And many more now are a breaking
And the near stone wall is a quaking
In a scream never felt before
Branches there now bent and broken
By the wrath of Gods which has been awoken
Their fury'd power has been spoken
In the tempest upon the moor

The rain comes down to cause a flood
With it comes the slush and mud
Flee this place is what you should
When the Gods are angry and sore.
The storm does rage upon the ground
Frightening beings that live around
With thrilling sights and sudden sounds
Upon the land or shore
The wall by the wind knocked over
Leaves the wanderer scared and sober
By the wrath of Him and also of Her
And oh mercy we can implore
The storm rages through the day
Thunder, lightening in deadly play
Wind and rain course all the way
In the tempest upon the moor

Then the rain lightens, softly slowing
And the wind falters to gently flowing
Thunder, lightening seem to be going
And soon we can be sure
Their wrath it seem to be disarming
They go from their anger to be so charming
And cease off their frightening harming
Of the beings whose mercy implore
And a gap appears there in the clouds
A sunbeam faintly touches ground
And there a rainbow can be found
Whose colours we all adore
The sky and storm now soon are clearing
The wrath of Gods no longer fearing
A calmer time is ever nearing
So ends the tempest upon the moor

Author's Notes: Simply just got inspired to write this poem. Nature at its most wrathful and self harming is during a storm.
