I hear the thunder rolling this night--
So loud and roaring, my very wits it's deploring.
The sound shook the world all around me,
My confidence was shattering, my will's guard battering.
The lightning struck with intense brightness,
From heaven above streaking, the earth 'twas seeking.
The storm raged across the land and o'er the sea--
By its fury my heart was pierced, igniting my deepest fears.
My awestruck terror at last begins to subside,
That once dreadful cacophony is now a sweet symphony.
By the lightning I now see everything so clearly,
My soul is soothed by gentle rain, my heart by Spring's refrain.
