Let the trees again be leafless; let the rivers flow no longer in their empty beds.
At last we reach a tree partly unoccupied, but it is leafless, alas!

The wind blew strongly, and soughed in the stiff and leafless boughs.
Even yet on the sheltered side there was a monthly rose or two on the leafless bushes.
