Quietly effective, Bill. Or should that read, Effectively quiet? :)

Does create a wonderfully calm mood, serene mood.

As usual, Bill, I admire your technique: I like very much the diminuendo of the sounds.

Thanks, guys. Yes, the sound was so faint that a verb would have been too emphatic a gesture.

No verb (what about "chimes"?). :-)

Good point, Vaughn. It's true "chimes" can be read as a verb, with "wind" as its subject. I hoped some readers would pick that up. I was referring to the absence of a verb if "chimes" is read as a noun. And thank you, floots.
