Winter Trees

by William Carlos Williams

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.

This is an object poem as it stands to describe the trees of winter. This is described explicitly in the last few lines, and the previous lines add description to the trees as they are in nature.
