Winter tree, barren of leaves and covered in frost,
Towering alone over that desolate hill,
Looking so pitiful and abandoned and lost:
Do you yearn for the caress of the children's shrill,
Care-free laughter and people playing in your leaves
And happily climbing towards you up your hill?

In the icy snows do even you believe
That they'll return to play in you again, Old tree,
And once again climb and play in your autumn leaves?
You wait for spring now, and it's a hard thing to see
In this winter tree clothed like death in winter's frost
The things in summers past you could have been to me.
