First Line: Like ghosts of happier days, they stand
Last Line: Abroad their canopy of spring.
Subject(s): Death; Trees; Winter; Dead, The

Like ghosts of happier days, they stand
Abandoned in a dreary land,
Their gaunt limbs lifted to the sky --
"Death comes to all," they seem to sigh.

Yet, underneath the crystal snow,
Mysterious forces lurk, I know;
And these dead trees one day will fling
Abroad their canopy of Spring.
