April

The roofs are shining from the rain.
The sparrows tritter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace
The little clouds go by.

Yet the back-yards are bare and brown
With only one unchanging tree--
I could not be so sure of Spring
Save that it sings in me.

Yet the back-yards are bare and brown With only one unchanging tree- I could not be so sure of Spring Save that it sings in me. excellent expression...
What is tritter? Not meaning to be rude but I am trying to explain for class and was wondering if it was a mistype or has a meaning I cannot find. Thanks,
Very to the point, and yet a little mystery...
