In the last few lines, he reveals a secret with romance re-defined. The poet speaks about how no one knows about this secret. He compares his deep-rooted secret with the most blissful of things in life. The secret is beyond the sky, and it bears itself on a tree he calls life. So far, Cummings hid the secret in a place where no mind or soul could find. And the secret is as simple as that: i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
