I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,

    Dreams kindle the fire of life at times.

    song of a secret bird, I like it, thanks.

    I think the secret bird is the magic and mistery of dreams, something we can't totally understand, because they're indeed ''dreams'' all stories, songs that are in our brain during sleep, a magical, secret world

    Only the song of a secret bird...

    Fantastic metaphor relates the death within. Secret bird means a signal beyond life and mathematically the poet does not want to hear any word of true love and it brings us also a life beyond life which nearing to death perhaps. Secret bird...the metaphorical imagery haunts us to march towards....

    That bird of dreams chirps, but life passes by? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? .

    This ballad makes me to read due to the secret of the singing bird!

    Wonderfully made poem. It insists on your reading it. Small query - 'the wind on the warm seas dozes...' Would not 'sea' be better? There seems to me just one too many sibilants here.

    Magnificent rime, indescribable feeling of serenity....
