Answer The poet portrays the water as both captivating and romantic in his poem "Meeting at Night." The water seems murky, and the waves are agitated by the narrator's boat's disturbance. The night is also beautiful, with a golden half moon that makes the water grey and the country gloomy. These images make the night seem even more romantic than it already is.
The speaker in this poem is a woman. She describes how she feels when she meets her lover at night, when no one can see them. Even though they are not really alone because of their boats, the woman still feels lonely because there is no one else around to love or be loved by.
She starts out the poem by saying that the night is beautiful and full of romance. Then, she goes on to say that even though there are no people around, she still feels lonely because there is no one else to love or be loved by. Finally, she ends the poem by saying that even though they are not really alone because of their boats, she still feels comfortable since their boats will protect them from danger. Boats are important for protecting yourself from danger when you are out on the water at night!
Answer In conclusion, the poet wants us to understand that love is very mysterious.
Answer The poet is captivated by the smooth and soothing sound of the waves lapping on the coast, both day and night. In his mind, he hears this wonderful melody. It fills him with joy and happiness.
The first verse is about a voyage. "the grey sea and the vast black land;/And the golden half-moon, huge and low," the first lines create the setting and describe the landscape. The mention of a "far dark plain" implies that it is midnight, and the "yellow half-moon" might be describing either a dawn or a sunset. However, since it is later found out that they are on a journey, it can only be dusk or early evening.
In the second verse, it says that they are approaching a shore where someone may help them. This could be a town or another ship. Since there is no reference to distance or time, we cannot be sure how far away this other person is.
In the third verse, it says that they see a light in the distance. This could be a fire or a lamp in a window. Since there is no reference to distance or time, we cannot be sure how far away this light is.
In the fourth verse, it says that they saw someone walking towards them over the field. This could be a farmer or someone else traveling.
In conclusion, the moon in this poem is meeting at night because it is dusk or early evening.
