Timothy was still marvelling at the dark circling birds when the first tornado landed. Jolted from her own quiet reveries, Lightening Paw lifted her nose from a bruised daffodil and sniffed the troubled air with determined inquisitiveness. “Quick Timothy, under the dock with you,” she barked hoarsely, padding swiftly in Timothy’s direction while frantically gesturing at the approaching funnel cloud with one outstretched paw. The sky was already darkening, the warm autumn sunbeams rapidly being swallowed by a huge spiralling cloud of uprooted trees, their mighty trunks flailing helplessly…

Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.

And all night long they sailed away;
And when the sun went down,
They whistled and warbled a moony song
The echoing sound of a coppery gong,
In the shade of the mountains brown.

‘O Timballo! How happy we are,
When we live in a sieve and a crockery-jar,
And all night long in the moonlight pale,
we sail away with a pea-green sail,
In the shade of the mountains brown!’

(The Jumblies, ©1968 by Edward Lear, Young Scott Books New York)
