The D minor section section does indeed sound like a dance(almost sounds like a waltz at first but later on, it sounds more like a minuet). I can hear wind in the piece as well. It starts off in A minor. The use of flats here kind of hints at a change in key, even as early on as measure 3 where I hear a chromatic melody of D, Db, C, over a C minor harmony(which I think kind of hints at the F minor section). The ending chord of the A minor section almost sounds like an F chord of some sort. Maybe that is because of the F that precedes the last 2 chords. The last chord in the A minor section definitely sounds like a diminished 7th, just without the seventh. Especially because of the leading tone being in the bass.

The F minor section doesn't sound funereally sad which I know you didn't want it to but it still seems a bit unexpected to me for the key. I have tried improvising in F minor before and all I get is sad music without any polytonality or high octaves. Just having it be polytonal with C minor, I find brings variance to the emotion of F minor. Being high up, I find always makes a key sound peaceful, even those keys with strong emotions such as F minor or Bb minor.
