Re: Janet

That Janet was no joke.

Hurricane Janet

The rain came down in thunderous might,
Huge billows leaped right into sight,
Sturdy roots no anchor be,
The massive trees washed out to sea.

The wind its voice an eerie sound,
The fury heard for miles around,
Rivers from their banks o’erflow,
Destruction and a mighty blow.

The pier no longer could withstand,
The constant blast, the furious band,
The trees in bloom, the harvest full
Shattered by the raging bull.

O Janet! We remember thee,
True monster from the distant sea,
Our spirit though you failed to shake,
Despite the horror left in your wake.
