1. Something that is kept or meant to be kept unknown or seen by others.
In my opinion, there are no secrets.
Once something is made known or is seen, it is no longer a secret. It's amazing to me how humans take words and consistently use them out of context.
We have a secret, just we three,
The robin, and I, and the sweet cherry-tree;
The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,
And nobody knows it but just us three.
But of course the robin knows it best,
Because she built the—I shan't tell the rest;
And laid the four little—something in it—
I'm afraid I shall tell it every minute.
But if the tree and the robin don't peep,
I'll try my best the secret to keep;
Though I know when the little birds fly about
Then the whole secret will be out.
