Gilberto and the Wind

We've had some teasingly warm weather lately, but it seems that Winter isn't done with us yet.  This morning there was even a silly five minute flurry of large white snowflakes.  It's the wind though that is blowing down the cold.  I walked home from a rummage sale and the cedar branches above my head groaned and squeaked and all the bare trees were swaying to and fro like a crowd of upstretched arms.

by Marie Hall Ets 1963

This book reminds me of Blow, Wind, Blow. This time it's a little boy who chases around the wind.
