The passing of time depicted as a play. Backstage, Autumn has just exited. Only her tutu and ballet slipper-clad leg are visible. Old Man Winter, wearing a coat, hat, mittens, and ice skates, watches her go. A playbill is posted on the opposite side of the backstage area. Onstage, "Public", holding a "List" and a wrapped present, talks to an elf representing December 21. The elf is dressed like Santa and holds a clock in one hand.
