On longer evenings,

Light, chill and yellow,

Bathes the serene

Foreheads of houses.

                                               A thrush sings,


                                               In the deep bare garden,

                                               Its fresh-peeled voice

Astonishing the brickwork.

It will be spring soon,

It will be spring soon—

And I, whose childhood

                                               Is a forgotten boredom,

                                               Feel like a child

                                               Who comes on a scene

                                                Of adult reconciling,

And can understand nothing

But the unusual laughter,

And starts to be happy.


1. What does the bird in the poem announce? How is this related to the title, ‘Coming’?

2. Why is the speaker’s childhood described as ‘a forgotten boredom’?

3. What causes the element of surprise when the child comes on the scene of ‘adult reconciling’?

4. What two things are compared in the poem?

5. How do you respond to these lines? Light, chill and yellow, Bathes the serene Foreheads of houses

6. Comment on the use of the phrase ‘fresh-peeled voice’.


1. The song of a bird is often the first sign of spring. Do you know the bird that signals the advent of vasant or spring in our country?

2. Do you know of other spring poems? How is this poem different from them?
