Re: Aba Bhai

Hi sis, I'll treasure that 'twice thanks', your comments are so delightful. Tennyson was supreme in eliciting the sounds and the pictorial quality of his poems. There are 10, 6 and 4 syllables in the longer stanzas those that elicit the sound effects of the moving waves. The beginning is with personal awareness that Time is against him now, it moves from twilight to evening to dark, so his use of "I" and "me" (personal). It then becones a general truth for all that that which is born is to die, with his use of "our" matching it as with progressing time, to a time which rhymes with "hour", which again, vindicates him from making any grammatical error. Your questions too, are thought-provoking and very intelligent which makes me happy if I can attempt to explain. Thank you dear Presta Didi.

Re: Kabu

You must have read his The Fair  Lady of Shalott. That too is quite wonderful. If i have not already posted one, I could, if you so desire, ma'am Kabu.

Re: C C T

I am glad you appreciate my explanation. It does take me some time to delve into their emotional spheres and share these with you all dear readers. But then again, that's my hobby and satisfaction. Thank you Sir.

Aba Bhai

How lovely you have explained this poem, dear Aba. It's nice he lived a bit longer after writing it. When one has been very ill and recovers, it sometimes changes our day-to-day perception of those things which are of greatest import to us. Perhaps this poem reflects a bit of that. Also, I like how you pointed out the change from first person singular...so one is not in grammatical error to do that? That's good to know, if so. Thank you. Well told, as usual, with clarity and depth. Thank you twice! lol.

It is wonderful isn't it. I always enjoy Tennesson's poems and your words brought deeper meaning for me; even than I held. I never really understood the pilot I think but it makes enormous sense, the perfect description of God.

Very nicely explained Abba . Emotional drive enters territory that one might hesitate to exploit.
