Most middle-school students read the moving story, There Will Come Soft Rains. The voice-clock in the story is represented by the 'ticktock' of the claves, and the music is lyrical and pastoral in nature. This work expresses that we are just a part of the cycle of life and the beauty of all that surrounds us will go on after we are gone. Written as a gift to Ray Bradbury and presented to him the night he received the Pulitzer Prize. This title is available in SmartMusic.
