Quote #4

That I could think there trembled through
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, (29-31)

Ironically, our speaker's not persuaded to Hope by the bird's song. It's the fact that this thrush is determined to sing despite having good reasons to shut up and die that so impresses our speaker. Maybe he'll even follow suit, eh?
