The Thunder Did Ring (Poem)

The Thunder Did Ring
by Elizabeth Alraune
(from a long time ago)

One nice, sunny
day I took a
boat ride
in the bay
I rode softly,
the waves
making perfect
pillows for
my thoughts
I was in heaven -
or so I thought
How wonderful
it was
there was nothing
else to do
no where else to be
It was just
the sea and me
The storm clouds
tip-toed in
I noticed not
a thing
until the
did ring
I was tossed
like never
Losing sight
of my strength
I took hold of the oar
It broke
in two
as my resolution
I was lost in
a storm and
that was all
that mattered
