    The atmosphere suddenly changes in the poem when the speaker hears the voice of a thrush from “among the bleak twigs overhead.” He sees a small frail thrush, beaten by the cold winter, singing a song which is not any ordinary song but “a full-hearted evensong of joy illimited.” He realizes that a small bird like the thrush has found some blessed Hope and chooses to spread that through its song amidst all the gloom and despair. The speaker realizes he, too, has to go on a quest to find this Hope instead of sulking and being sad.
