The River rises in the darkness,
And the wind snaps giant trees.
Cold moves down from the mountains,
And plants droop as they freeze.
The storm releases its fury,
And a huge tree falls down,
To lie helpless and alone
On the hard, frozen ground.
Nature can hit without warning.
Destruction, can be the result.
Losses occur in life,
And often, it is nobody’s fault.
For storms are a part of nature,
And life gives and it takes.
Trees fall in the forest,
And loving hearts can break.
