O Blithe New-comer! I have heard,

I hear thee and rejoice.

O Cuckoo! Shall I call thee Bird,

Or but a wandering Voice?

While I am lying on the grass

Thy twofold shout I hear,

From hill to hill it seems to pass,

At once far off, and near.

Though babbling only to the Vale,

Of Sunshine and of flowers,

Thou bringest unto me a tale

Of visionary hours.

Thrice welcome, darling of the Spring!

Even yet thou art to me

No bird, but an invisible thing,

A voice, a mystery;

The same whom in my school-boy days

I listened to; that Cry

Which made me look a thousand ways

In bush, and tree, and sky.

To seek thee did I often rove

Through woods and on the green;

And thou wert still a hope, a love;

Still longed for, never seen.

And I can listen to thee yet;

Can lie upon the plain

And listen, till I do beget

That golden time again.

O blessed Bird! the earth we pace

Again appears to be

An unsubstantial, faery place;

That is fit home for Thee!

The text shows how all of us keep our memories forever in our minds, which means we never lose our innocence, it is just hidden. The cucckoo is the activating botton for the poet, who remember everything thanks to the cry of this bird.

Guy's I've read some comments on this poem that exhibit it as a poem that addresses time mainly. The unseen bird, roaming all around, is just a metaphor used to indicate and embody the idea of the "uncatchable" time.

Words worths poems have a nostalgic effect. His attatchment with nature is clear in ths poem of his. Though he doesnt knw what actually a cuckoo is, he s enthralled by its doubl fold uncomposed singing beats. . .. That he calls a WANDERING VOICE

In this poem of william, he is welcoming the spring in the most elegant way. He says that when the spring starts, a bird, which he later named as cuckoo starts singing in the most rejoicing manner.He says that he is in search of the bird, and he is unable to find it.He says that when he was a school boy he used to search for this bird all round the clock. He says that the voice of the cuckoo is like a mystery. HE also says that he hears that pleasure some voice through the woods and whereever there is greenery.In the end teh poet says that he shall listen to this sound while he lays there on the green plains.

In Wordsworth´s poem, there is an element of nostalgia that makes him feel warmed from hearing the Cuckoo´s voice "I hear thee and rejoice" Wordsworth describes the bird as a "wandering voice" and this creates a sense of freedom in the birds independent nature "wandering" gives the sense of going forward in life, cautiously, but at no particular aim.
Wordsworth uses an extended metaphor to portray how he wants to find the bird "still longed for but never seen" which is almost like he is trying to find his freedom. This brings him back to the time when he was a child, "the golden time again" where he is young, innocent and most importantly evident in this poem, free.

This poem shows Wordsworth's view that nature can bring back memories. He uses the Cuckoo that he hears as a man and it reminds him of when he was a schoolboy trying to search for it. "Thou bringest unto me a tale of visionary hours" means that the cuckoo brought back so many memories to the speaker that he could envision them for hours. The poem is about childhood memories making an older man remember a Golden Age when something as simple as a cuckoo bird was amazing.
