Ecphrasis of A Silent Tree

Picture courtesy my niece Zahraa. Thanks JM for what inspired the verse.
O wintery night, how cold is your touch,
My branches remember their leaves,
I miss their green laughter, I miss it so much
Till all of me shivers and grieves.

O wintery night, your stars lend to me
That with them my branches may play
The song of sweet silence, how it will be
The silentest rustle I say.
