Exulting implies to rejoice with zeal or zealousness. I know this because others are also ringing bells, and later in the poem it is said that they are clustered together waiting with wreaths and flowers. The people standing at the pier are ecstatic their gaze is drawn to the ship (line 4), therefore they can't be aboard it.
Exultation is a feeling of great joy or pride. People often exalt when they are excited about something good happening. They may shout "exult!" when they want you to join in their excitement.
Exultation can also mean to praise aloud. People often exalt God when they pray. They may say, "exalt him with my voice" when they ask Him to help them tell others about His work.
As an adjective, exalted means raised up or lifted up. People are said to be exalted when they are given a special position. A king can be exalted by another country if he agrees to leave his throne and live there.
Exalted also means made happy or pleased. Friends often exalt one another by saying nice things about each other. They may even give each other gifts on the occasion.
As verb forms, exulting means praising loudly; celebrating; rejoicing.
Exultingly, exuberantly, proudly, happily.
Exultation and exaltation vary as nouns in that exultation is the act of exulting; vigorous excitement at success or victory, or at any advantage obtained; euphoric enjoyment; triumph; and exaltation is the act of exalting or raising high; also, the condition of being elevated; elevation.
Exultation and exaltation are both forms of exuberance. Exuberant means "full of joy or pleasure"; "lively"; "cheerful". It can also mean "overly enthusiastic", "excessive in praise or admiration".
Exultation is something that comes from within; it is done by someone who is joyful or pleased. Exuberance comes from without; it is done by someone who is lively or merry. When something causes us to feel joyful or merry this is exultation we are experiencing; when this same thing causes us to feel lively or merry this is exuberance we are undergoing.
Exultation and exuberance can be used to describe someone who is excited about something: "The students exulted over their win." Or they can be used to describe what that person is doing or feeling: "The students were so exuberant after the game that they decided to keep playing..."
There are three other words that can be used to describe this emotion: cheer, glee, and joy.
They were overjoyed with their success. (Used without object) to express or feel a vigorous or victorious delight; to rejoice excessively; to be overjoyed or exuberant. They were overjoyed at the news of Napoleon's victory. She was overjoyed at having found her purse.
Overjoyed means very happy or pleased. Overjoyed people are extremely happy or pleased. That statement doesn't sound right. Maybe "overjoyed" isn't the best word to use here. The term you want is "exuberant". People who are exuberant are very happy.
Exultation is the act of celebrating something good that has happened. Her family celebrated her graduation by going out for dinner and giving her a gift card for her birthday. She enjoyed seeing all her friends again after being away from school for so long.
An expression of joy on someone's face is called a smile. To get exuberant smiles, give your students gifts they will really like, such as new books or music CDs. Tell them how much you appreciate what they have done for you by saying "You're welcome." Make sure they know that they are free to accept your help if they need it in the future.
The squad was overjoyed with their triumph. 2 obsolete: to leap with delight or laugh out loud are still used today when something funny happens.
