The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls
The tide rises, the tide falls
The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;
Along the sea-sands damp and brown
The traveller hastens toward the town,
And the tide rises, the tide falls
The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls
Darkness settles on roofs and walls,
But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;
The little waves, with their soft white hands,
Efface the footprints in the sands,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.
The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls
The morning breaks; the steed in their stalls
Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;
The day returns, but nevermore
Returns the traveller to the shore,
And the tide rises, the tide falls

Poetry Analysis Question #3
Was symbolism and imagery used effectively?
Yes, the symbolism of the ocean as life and the town as death helps explain the importance of life and death.
