Quote #4

   With thy clear keen joyance (76)

With this one, we mostly just want you to check out all of the different ways he has of saying that this bird is really happy. In some ways, this says almost exactly what line 60 did. But the way these references to the bird's happy song pile up help us to see how important that happiness is to the speaker. He's almost in love with this pure, beautiful song.
