empty of people,barren
depressed,lonely and sad
cause great destruction of,ravage
"bare rocky hills"
"the bleak treeless regions of the high Andes"
"the desolate surface of the moon"
"a stark landscape"
"depressed and desolate of soul"
"a low desolate wail"
"The mother deserted her children"
"The epidemic depopulated the countryside"
"The enemy lay waste to the countryside after the invasion"
To stand, like a desolate sea-bird, alone.
