Many times people do not know how to say what they feel and the poet says that one must not let his thoughts die for he should put it in the best words and bring them forward as it could turn out to be one of the loveliest things.

(iv) The poet says that when we look at something, our mind creates a thought. However, it stands lost behind our eyes as we do not put it into words and it does not gain its freedom. Therefore, the poet suggests for everyone to put those thoughts into words and give them expression, so that they do not die after staying bound in the prison behind our eyes.
