The rains came
Wet embraces from Mother Nature hugged the land
and people feared a smothering death
I went puddle jumping

The winds came
Arms blown round the world lifted it up
and people feared a whiplashed death

I went kite flying

The earthquakes came
Earth reached up and gathered itself onto itself
and people feared a claustrophobic death

I went dancing

The snows came
Banks grew and encompassed all things
and people feared a glacial death

Guess what I did
