What is known as “mother croon of bird”? Why is the song sung in a hushed voice?

Or, What is heard in the quiet hush of the evening hours, as told in the poem “The Heart of the Tree” by Henry Cuyler Bunner?

  • “Mother-croon of bird” is the gentle humming voice of a mother-bird to its baby.
  • The song is not sung in a hushed voice, but it is heard in the hushed moments of twilight, as then the noises in the surroundings gets reduced.

To explain the lines —

For song and mother-croon of bird,
In hushed and happy twilight heard —

The poet says that the song and mother-croon of the birds living on the tree are heard in the quiet evening hours. That makes the twilight hours happy for the man who hears the song.
