As Autumn could not move away as quick,
He so was rooted to that glooming spot,
As was the leafless tree that served as stick.
The depths of Winter’s passing made things thick
And sap chocked down that tree’s life like a clot.

With white of many types—all touched was blank,
Including half the tree in Autumn’s hand.
