Poem Response Prompt-Tornado

In the poem Tornado, I was surprised how the beginning had a calm, peaceful and soothing setting. I assumed that the first stanza of the poem would describe bad weather or the unruling nature. I believe that the story is describing how the fields were and what was on/in the fields before the tornado hit. "Or to chase our long flies." This quote makes me think of the children I see on the hill who chase the fire flies. This poem makes me feel like a little kid, but then everything gets out of control. I think that the author uses reflection interior monlogue by describing the weather.
