"Quand le souffle passait en sifflant au-dessus de ma tête, c'était le vent dans les grands arbres de la forêt, et non la pluie. Quand il rasait le sol, c'était le vent dans les buissons et les hautes herbes, mais ce n'était pas la pluie. Quand il bruissait et chuintait à hauteur d'homme, c'était le vent dans les champs de maïs. Il possédait si bien les sonorités de la pluie que l'on se faisait abuser sans cesse, cependant, on l'écoutait avec un plaisir certain, comme si un spectacle tant attendu apparaissait enfin sur la scène. Et ce n'était toujours pas la pluie"
