Well, thank you very much! Perhaps I should re-read the poem also! LOL!

Ahh, of course. I must re-read and study this more deeply. I do so enjoy Tennyson. Thanks so much, Aba brother.

Re:

Glad you liked. Yes sir, I'm perfectly ok, except that one happened again and again, I was lucky.

Re: Aba Brother

I'm glad sister Presta that you liked the analysis, and that it may have varied impressions and interpretations. The long drawn vowel sounds with the consonants preceding them ... "ripens, and fades, and falls, and hath no toil", are evocative of everything in nature and the atmosphere of the place, as if slowed down in some hypnotic indolence, like in stupor which, as Tennyson says here, is immensely pleasurable to the mariners. Yes, they would even prefer death to toil, setting out to sea one again. Probably, it is not quite boredom because they are in a semi-wakeful state, where one cannot feel bored. When time doesn't seems to move and there is nothing to look forward to, and one in conscious awareness, then boredom can be intensely felt. Thanks sis, for asking.

Aba Brother

Oh, such an engaging poem this is. So beautifully told, and I get the sense that even though they are under the influence, it gives them no peace. Almost like a stagnation, but I shall have to re-read this. It is an interesting poem on many levels, and I do so thank you, Aba, for this post and bringing Tennyson here to us. Do they wish death, or do they wish an end to boredom? And is Death any better? Or is boredom Death?  Very good. Loved it.

Thank you dear friend. I do love Tennyson, and I wish I had studied him more deeply in my university years.
