23 - Stormy Sea

The weather
became unsettled and stormy
Heavy clouds gathered
and torrents of rain
swept over the face of nature
from time to time.
The sea was in frequent commotion;
heavy ground-swells
drove masses of water
hissing and foaming
against the cliffs.
Everything heralded
 the approaching rains.

All nature
sounding forth
the solemn overture
to the grandest
work of the year.
