Substance of the Poem:

The poet loves a spring day when the woods are full of new blossoms and there is no rumbling of dark clouds in the sky. The poet further informs us that the tree, suffering from acute chill, comes into life again with the advent of spring. The tree draws its food from the loose soil of earth and thrives. The poet also mentions some of colorful birds in the poem who come out from the forest and fill the atmosphere with their sweet song. At the last stanza he describes the nature after the sunset when bright moon light fills the upper side of the hill leaving the valleys dark. The poem salutes the arrival of the spring in its varied forms and expresses the joy of the landscape as April comes.
