I

And as it walks across the land

With bright sparking legs

The lightning leads the thunder

 

II

The static of lightning

Between two hands

And they cannot touch

A thing

 

III

The old oak tree still stands

Dark and slightly bent

From the crack of the lightning

 

IV

The animals know what it means

When the lightning comes

 

V

He strikes with lightning

Because then there is fear

Without a face

And with force

 

VI

It waits

Shooting among the clouds

The lightning baits its prey

As a cat

 

VII

As lightning does

Quick and brilliant

We have come

And we go
