Yellowwood gets its common name from the yellow color of its heartwood when freshly cut. Cladrastis means "brittle branch." The root bark of yellowwood was used as a dye by early settlers in the southern Appalachians. The tree's wood was once used to make gun stocks. The yellow colour paints their appearances bright. Also, the usage of the word 'yellow' repeatedly in the first stanza, symbolises death (refers to the yellow leaves), silence (refers to the day time that's without rain or wind) other than beauty.
