Today the Wind

Today the wind
is very quiet,
rustling not rushing,
a faint but insistent
white noise — not gone
not giving up, but still
whispering and shushing
and once more muttering.

The wind is making woo-woo ghost noises
and bumping the doors like an intruder
wanting to break in. I refuse to open
but it stays all day, insisting, even begging
with high-pitched wailing and then
the desperate, long, low, pitiful howls.
