"The Laburnum Top" is a poem which celebrates the energy and life of nature. The laburnum tree is sitting in the silence of fall, without movement or apparent life. In flies a goldfinch, stirring up life both in and on the tree, as evidenced by the sound of rustling leaves and the scurrying of a lizard. The "engine" has roared to life with all kinds of sounds and life and energy; then the bird leaves and the laburnum falls back into silence and stillness...and the impending dormancy of winter.
