SYMPHONY OF A WINTER STORM

Jesus Betancourt 1955 (New York)



CLASH !, fills the skies with lightning and thunder
Nature's cymbals begin the Overture
Torrential rains from clouds pebble down, to the ground under
Falling trees pound the earth, with a sound to capture

Power lines whip wire, like an electrical conductor
Howling winds respond to the eerie baton
Grumbles and growls harmonize from every structure
Nature's concert is over, when the storm is gone
