The Power of Stories

Lightning hit the ground
With a thundering smash
A little girl cries
Running to her room in a quick dash

The room lights up
With a silent flash
Seconds later
A thundering crash

The girl
Now under her covers
Blocks out the noise
And reads stories of lovers

The storm never calmed
But the girl did, just fine
For stories have power
If you would give them the time.
