There's a summer storm coming.
You can smell the rain on the breeze.
The lightning flashes across the sky,
thunder rumbles through the pine trees.
I sit on the old oaken porch watching
the beauty of Mother Nature's power,
as the rain fills the earth with
its cleansing, refreshing shower.
The air charged with electricity,
fills my simply heart with peace.
The renewment of life from the rain,
puts a weary soul at ease.
Thunder rumbling harder now,
as the earth and cabin tremble.
How mighty and terrifying,
sounding much like cannons in battle.
Raindrops sprinkle among the leaves,
and dance upon the thirsty ground ...
Oh how I love a summer storm,
the smell, the feel when they come around.
So, pull up a chair and sit right down,
relax and enjoy nature's show.
Let's talk a while and listen to the storm,
nature's most beautiful concerto.
