Early dawn's curtain,
Drawn to reveal rain showers,
And a pertinent absence of birdsong;
The hum of a motor engine;
The coolness of this morning,
Is quickly snatched away,
As the rain subsides;
Bird songs;
And sunlight floods the morning
Curtain call

opening windows-
a reservoir of raindrops
on leaves

I like your second curtain call here, Gillena. The rainy season first curtain call set the scene very nicely though.
