Read Poem: Lightning Oh, Lightning, by Nicholas Hollander

lightning, oh lightning
oh, lordly me
striking out truth ‘til eternity
oh, come to me now
won’t you ease me body and soul
as you strike down through a hole
in the clouds
let the rain come to follow me down

I’ll go talk to the wind
oh, lordly me
chasing the dreams of eternity
oh, come to me now
won’t you ease my body and soul
as you blow pole to pole
in the clouds
let the rain come and follow me down

moonlight, oh moonlight
oh, lordly me
cool and profound as eternity
oh, come to me now
won’t you ease my body and soul
as you shine down through a hole
in the clouds
let the rain come and follow me down

let the rain come and follow me down

Nicholas Hollander, 2021
