The storm rages within,

        at the rush of the wind.

It’s now a gale, far past a breeze.

        Messy hair is humbling

        Over litter I am stumbling

         Simple things set me fumbling

Lord, calm this storm inside my heart –

The hush of the wind begets a new start.

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
