For Kate Clifford's challenge. Thank you, teacher! :-)

The wind kicked it up another notch
And cauliflower clouds boiled overhead
Lightning forked down and tasted the Earth
As if it were consuming daily bread

A funnel touched down and hit pay dirt
It had found an all-you-can-eat buffet
It put everything into its mouth
And what didn't taste good it threw away

In a cave, a tiny kitty cried
Because tornadoes were its biggest fear
A faerie gave the kitty a flute
And taught it to play it when storms came near

The funnel roared and the kitty played
A special "Don't Be Afraid of Storms" song
The melody was sweet on the air
And somehow, the winds did not seem as strong

The lightning laughed and danced with thunder
The rain danced the funnel under the ground
The kitten's music had calmed the storm
And it did not cost the kitty a pound
