October

In night’s depths, Gríma saw a pair of hobbits steal off into the fields, fleeing or perhaps merely seeking a pleasant hour.

He understood that even halfling peasants amid their oppression had more than he did.  Then he retreated to his shack, Éowyn and Théoden and Saruman watching indifferently from out of the autumnal corridors of his mind.  He stuffed what passed for a pillow into his mouth and fell back before the noise that had been crouched waiting for weeks or years.  It came forth in shrill, muted volleys, flaying his throat.

Only wind and rasping leaves answered.
