Nocturne

Late last night, on and off, the wind worried around the house, stirring the trees, humming in the chimney.  When it quieted to a mouse's breath, the crickets and cicadas would take up the song.  Then it swelled to a forte, and acorns pelted the roof. But the rain, where was the rain?  Sometimes its hard to sleep when you're waiting for rain.
