What The Thunder Is Singing by Eddie Awusi

What is the thunder singing
Grumbling and rumbling
In a loud metallic voice
Like a deaf and dumb
In ecstasy and groaning?

The thunder is as tipsy as a songbird
Drunk with joy
Boastful to a disgruntled cloud
Of the seasons that are to come

Boastful to a disgruntled cloud
So it sings to the ravenous sky
Like a deaf and dumb
Its sweet cherry rose songs
To brighten the frowning cloudscape.
