"Let the Wind Whisper Without Me" by Elizabeth Emerald

A Witch of a Wind descended upon us at midnight, shrieking, howling

Scratch 'em. Such windy accompaniments are trite at best; hyperbolic at worst. (As regards last night's wind, they're understatements.)

I am in awe of poets, and prose writers, who manage to construe fresh imagery in the face of temptation toward the stale.

As for me, whenever a wind, especially one that is metaphorical, threatens to disrupt my story, I grab my cast of characters and run for cover. 

Thus concludes the confession of the symbolically-challenged, hopelessly literal-minded, yours truly,

Elizabeth Emerald.

Given my avowed aversion of the figurative, it might reasonably be inferred from my surname that I am of the leprechaun race.

Not so; I am a faux Emerald, having assumed the moniker when, upon divorcing Green(e), I desired a more vibrant shade.
