Nature is mysterious. I like it that way and won't ruin it through Science
(Axiom).

when i read this peom it took some time to analyse its deep meaning.the
poem talks that the skies tell their secret in the form of
rain,thunderstorm,light to the hills when it reaches to hill,they even
can't resist and tell it to Orchards and then to daffodils.everyone in this
world have someone with whom he shares his thoughts.in the end emily says
that keep your secrets,if i try to keep them i can't hold of it.what do one
know, that one who knows about your inner thoughts will keep them.you can't
have your trust on anyone because the world is so mean.

this poem is basically relating to life on how people spread rumors.
Notice how emily starts off her poem by the sky, which is ongoing. The
skies tell the hills, the hills tell the orchards, and they the daffodils.
then a bird over hears it. This is how rumors start as well. the theme is
life is like a pattern moving all the time. The poem is also like maze.
it starts at one point (which is the original source or person) and it ends
once the rumor stops or it is formed into a new story and changed. Emily
uses consonance, personification, rhyme, caesura, 4 verses in each stanza
and there are four stanzas. I did research on this poem for my english 12
final and i found it very interesting. It has many different ways to
relate it to real life, to a book, or to the media.
