Storm at Sea

In the great old storm the thunder goes bang bang bang! It is like a beating drum,
It is as loud as a firing gun at the start of a race,
It is an enormous earthquake,
The thunder is furious at the world.
Bang bang bang!

In the great old storm the wind goes whoosh whoosh whoosh! It is like a howling wolf,
It is as cold as ice from the Arctic,
It is a wild whistle blowing high and low,
The wind is singing a deadly song.
Whoosh whoosh whoosh!

In the great old storm the waves go crash crash crash! They are as tall as towering buildings in a city, They are like fists pounding the surface,
They are blue bulldozers of the sea,

The waves are waving sailors goodbye to Davy Jones' Locker. Crash crash crash!
