Great Regulars: A storm breaks and then clears.

Such an ordinary event and yet one that always feels like a miracle. One moment the thunder and lightning crash above our heads, the next we stand transfixed by the trembling quiet. This poem takes us to the exact second that storm turns to stillness--and fear turns to joy.

This is "change beyond hope!"

from Christopher Nield: The Epoch Times: The Antidote--Classic Poetry for Modern Life: A Reading of 'A Thunder Shower' by Coventry Patmore
