Dover Beach. Matthew Arnold. The sea is calm to-night. The tide is full, the moon lies fair Upon the straits; on the French coast the light Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand; Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay. Come to the window, sweet is the night-air!

Dover Beach Matthew Arnold

Slide 2

The ocean is quiet to-night. The tide is full, the moon lies reasonable Upon the straits; on the French drift the light Gleams and is gone; the precipices of England stand; Glimmering and boundless, out in the serene straight. Gone to the window, sweet is the night-air! Just, from the long line of shower Where the ocean meets the moon-whitened land, Listen! you hear the grinding thunder Of rocks which the waves step back, and hurl, At their arrival, up the high strand, Begin, and stop, and after that again start, With tremulous rhythm moderate, and bring The everlasting note of pity in. Sophocles long back Heard it on the Aegaean, and it presented to Into his mind the turbid rhythmic movement Of human hopelessness; we Find additionally in the sound an idea, Hearing it by this far off northern ocean. The Sea of Faith Was once, as well, at the full, and round earth\'s shore Lay like the folds of a brilliant support rolled. In any case, now I just hear Its despairing, long, pulling back thunder, Retreating, to the breath Of the night-twist, down the endless edges drear And bare shingles of the world. Ok, adore, let us be consistent with each other! for the world, which appears To lie before us like a place that is known for dreams, So different, so delightful, so new, Hath truly neither happiness, nor cherish, nor light, Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for agony; And we are here as on a darkling plain Swept with befuddled alerts of battle and flight, Where oblivious armed forces conflict by night.
