It's the song that Doris Day sang in a film, "Calamity Jane"(53) and won an Oscar. After confessing a hided love, the song would be very joyous and bright. In the film, Calamity Jane, who's stronger than a male, has accepted her love by Wild Bill Hickok, so she sings it. This musical western includes another beautiful song, that is "Black Hills of Dakota". Doris Day, that I saw at my age of 15-6 years-old, was so lovely and beautiful. She was one of the girls who I'd have loved to marry with. I had remembered the lyric of the song so immediately. The words like 'impatient, daffodil and often' were the ones that I looked up in a dictionary for the first time, then. I was pronouncing 'often' as oftn with 'f' sound. It wasn't to be wrong, though. That is very dear old song. And my secret love was Doris Day herself. I was shocked that I knew that this healthy and gay- American-girl-looking Doris had been already married that time. Ha ha, ha, ha... She was too much elder and too much far away girl of distant America for the young boy.
Once I had a secret love, That lived within the heart of me. All too soon my secret love, Became impatient to be free.
So I told a friendly star, The way that dreamers often do, Just how wonderful you are, And why I am so in love with you.
Now I shout it from the highest hills, I even told the golden daffodils. At last my hearts an open door, And my secret love's no secret anymore.
