    Hi Alex,

    The term ideally means what you understood it as. However, poetically words can mean a lot of other things too, depending upon the poet's disposition.

    Simply put, it just means what you understood it as.

    Good Luck.

    Regards,
    Swati

    You've got the understanding of the phrase. Yes, your second example is fine.
