As she entered. the tree suddenly seemed to come alive. it started up like a machine. there shrill sounds of twittering arid the tree seemed to quiver with joy. the mother bird was like the engine of her family. like an engine she added life to branch. showing her striped face, with yellow and black markings that were peculiar to her. then with a mysterious. low whistle she flew off into the sky. once again the laburnum quietened down as it was before her arrival. .
After that, her body is yellow and thus blends in with the yellow leaves of the tree. finally after reaching the branch end, she makes a rather sweet Chirping sound. the poet compares this sound to whispering as she flies away in the limitless sky. thus after the bird leaves the tree. the laburnum tree once again becomes silent and death-like.
