Young writers in action: Cyclone Debbie

Swirling wind fills the sky,
I hope it is not a cyclone’s eye.
Suddenly the wind roars,
And rain floods the roads.
Cyclone Debbie is on her way,
And it is staying all day.
Be careful, you better watch out,
I hope you will shout!
Cyclone Debbie is on her way,
I don’t think, she’ll ever stay.
Everybody is safe, everybody is here,
Next time we will not stand fear.
