I think this poem is about a murder. Birds symbolize the relationship
between the heavens and the earth, and the wind (the boy) is cold like
death. It also mentions witnesses (like of a crime). Flowers and cold do
not go together. When the flower leaned aside, I think that is her death.
Flowers die when the first frost comes (winter wind).

has anyone ever though of the wind (man) being a player, trying to get to
the flower (woman) but being stopped by the window (third party)? just
think about it...

Maybe it means this
ok i think the part about the caged bird and Frosty veil is nothing more
than imagry just trying to set up the scene. When he marks her through the
window he noticed her. the Wind(boy) is a young boy that knows more about
boy things but is naive about love. he comes over to see her and try to get
her to get her to leave with him but she said blows him off and he leaves..

I'm not a poem critic.but it seems to me ‘he marked her through the pane’
means simply to notice the flower.like we notice someone special.Ofcourse
here the flower is the girl,living in a small world,calm & quiet,allowed to
watch the world from inside the window.her love is silent.And the boy is
the winter wind,the proof reader of destruction.he shows his love in every
way he can.Their differences in nature & limitations to stay aside made the
flower to refuse the wind in silence,in pain.

Im having alittle trouble analysing this poem. I have estaablished the fact
the the winter breeze is the boy and the window flower is the girl, but im
not understanidng the relationship beween the two line for line.
I know that their is a love connection between the two,
"when the frosty winter veil was melted over at noon, and the caged yellow
bird hungover her in tune"
these lines have to do with imeragery, i can imagine the winter frost blew
by the flower at night, but by noon, any proof of him being there was
"he marked her through the pain, he could not help but mark, and only
passed her by, to come again at dark"
i dont understand these lines? is he hurting her???

I see this poem differently. I see it as the wind(boy) sacrificing his love
for her, as he could only hurt her. And the window flower, in a way wanted
to be with him, but didn't because he hurt her. "He marked her through the
pane, he could not help but mark" As she leaned aside he left. She would
not go against nature, they were too opposite for love.
