Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

Trying to understand Bourne of time and place,
the theme of dead in the poem a realism of life
Sunset and evening star Excellent use of rhythmic effect.
A great poem crafted so nicely.filling calm delight in the heart.
No one speaks to the bitter-sweetness of life and death like Tennyson. Just brilliant!
Before the last sleep Lord will be with me.
One of Tennyson's finest poems and one the greatest poems about ageing and mortality ever written. So much wisdom and so many feelings conveyed by someone facing their death.
Great piece for all time to be adored
A beautiful poem full of hope. Many of Tennyson's poems are long but this short poem says so much in so few words.
One of my long time favorites.
Good work. Well written. Sylva.
Speechless............!
The poem portrays the returning of man back to his creator (GOD) . It bid the lovers not to mourn nor sad for his departure. Death is inevitable.
I hope to see my Pilot face to face. With faith he believes to see his Maker. Beautiful work, I love it
