I hear a foghorn in the mist

Its throaty call, sandpaper kissed

Swaying branches shiver and shake

You’d think the sky was gonna’ break.

I love the sound of stormy skies

When lightning strikes and crackle flies

The weather comes, it goes astray

It spins about then skulks away !

I love You Lord, You are my strengths

I’d follow You to any lengths

You are courage and made me strong

And in Your care I do belong.

I am with You where ere You go

Through summer storm or winter’s snow

And when I die remember this

I beg of You, one parting kiss !

The morning wakens with each dawn

And tiptoes round with trepid yawn

The air is chill and blows intense

Against this frost we’ve small defense.

When Mother Nature throws a fit

We always get the worst of it

She is a force beyond the will

Of those who fight her cold and chill.

I cannot wait till she moves on

And we succumb to springtime’s charm

A welcome change to all we’ve seen

This endless winter’s snowy scene !

These criss-cross tracks seen from o’erhead

The only sign our eyes have read

Some lonely truck half-cased in snow,

No telltale signs that we should know

How drivers found their safe escape

In this abandoned stark snowscape !

The storm continues wild and wet

How long before the wind will let

The drifts abate and settle down

So we may trudge on solid ground ?

I love the snow its smell and feel

Reminding us of  all that’s real

One more facet of God’s great love

That shadows us from up above !
