(Hurricane David in Dominica,August 29 1979)


HUmlRICAE0 .
Dark, grey angry clouds scamper aloft.
HORR ICGANE
The wind tempestuously growls, howls, whirls, shrieks, smashed ,
HURRICANE1 The sea furiously hurls waves, leaping, crashing.
The rain pours savagely, lashing mercilessly:
A dangerous trio bent for devastation.
Rivers roaring with rage overflow thir'banks;
Landslides add to the desolation.
Buildings: some unroofed, dbme badly damaged, some destroyed,
Some people are fearful, shocked, hungry, disconsolate;
Some heartlessly loot, steal and curse.'
Over two scores have passed away --
May GOD grant them rest. "
Mountains and hills are bare and brown as if scorched by fire.
Trees, giant and dwarf', cannot withstand the onslaught;
Some stripped of branches and leaves
Stand as if weeping in agony.
Banana, lime, cocoa trees, coconut palms
Lie in disarray like fallen brothers in armsa.
Where are the dove, the hummingbird, the titine?
Where are the cricket, the lizard, the crapaud?
There is no chirping, no cooing, no croaking.
DOMINICA staggers from the blows of wind, sea and rain
She suffers from irate plotting, 'looting, stealing natives,
She is plagued with irresposible mortals.
She weeps over her painful wounds,
She mourns the death of sons, and daughters,
But lo, DOMINICA will rise again
With the refreshing breeze,
With the laughing Sun by day,
With the smiling Moon by night,
With the Stars twinkling merrily,
With the smitten trees refreshed with new foliage,
With the vari-coloured flowers brightening the scenery.
DOMINICA will rise..again
In spite of the tainted, thoughts,
the dirty tongues,
the devillah deeds,
lies, hatred, deceit,
She will rise' again -
For GOD is merciful, compassionate.
He will answer dur prayers for forgiveness
We will receive i we ask,
We will find if we seek,
The door will open if we knock.
DOMINICA will rise again
If we learn and do GOD'S will.
Eternal Pather, we humbly pray:
Grant that we do Thy will always,
EIowing, loving and serving Thee.
Bind us in love to work together
In this Thy land: dear. DOMNUICA.
