Hurricane Poem

Hurry Jane!
A hurricane!
Lotsa’ wind,
Lotsa’ rain…
Stay inside,
‘Till it’s calm,
Can be dangerous
Hang with mom!
Hurry Jane!
A hurricane!
Lotsa wind,
Lotsa’ rain…
Swirling, sweeping,
Giant Storm,
An eye’s
The center,
It’s the norm!
Goes by many other names,
Other than that of hurricane,
Tropical cyclone,
Tropical storm,
Typhoon in Asia,
Is the norm…
Hurry Jane!
A hurricane!
Lotsa’ wind,
Lotsa’ rain…
Hurry Jane
Stay inside,
Stay real safe,
‘Til winds subside…
