      How does the thrush stand as a sole symbol of hope in this poem?

      The landscape looked so lifeless, dead, and depressing. The snow and the chill had pushed everyone into their homes. No one dared to come out to do any activity. The humdrum visible in a normal street had become a dream. Only the mortuary, the repository of people dead, stood silently as if to say that death and destruction had arrived to engulf the world around. The tree stood as if someone had ripped it of its leaves. Like a relic of better times gone by, the tree stood showing its bare branches. It looked akin to a musical instrument that has been ravaged, and rendered unusable.

      From the midst of such pervasive gloom, an embattled thrush begins to squall, as if to declare that it has weathered all odds and has pushed death back. It wants to say that all not finished yet. Life would emerge with all its glory and radiance. Hope and smile would return. The earth would be abuzz with the hustle and bustle of life. In a nutshell, the thrush is the harbinger of good times. So, through its shrill, but loud cry, the thrush wants to dispel the gloom and usher optimism and energy.
