                  And looked at the world, and descended;

                  And lo, it is ended.

                The leaves are all dead on the ground,
                  Save those that the oak is keeping
                To ravel them one by one
                  And let them go scraping and creeping
                Out over the crusted snow,
                  When others are sleeping.
