She was not a nor'easter, they called
Her Irene and She was a Hurricane
Stormy winds take my breath away
As I watched with awe
Anticipating the changing sky
I knew she would be here soon
Gentle rain fell
I closed my eyes and listened to
Her winds howl
Then at my door she arrived
She was violent, she uprooted trees
And flooded rivers,
Flooded homes and roadways
She left us in the dark,
Homes and business's to be rebuilt
left people homeless
But worst She took lives.
Tears will fall of those whose livelihoods in ruins
...For those whose lives she took!
Irene made landfall in late summer
front and center with great fury
She was a force of Reckoning
Whose name I will not soon forget.
Whenever I hear the winds blow I will remember her.
