Beaches in Summer Color Palette
I Saw from the Beach’ is written by the Irish poet Thomas Moore. This metaphorical life is centered on the water of the sea and a boat near the shore. Moore portrays the boat as a metaphor of soul and the sea to human passion. According to him, the boat floats on the water. But when the water recedes it makes the boat look motionless and desolate. It makes him think about how passions grow in our hearts. When these emotions recede, it makes our souls burn out. That’s why the speaker laments,
Oh, who would not welcome that moment’s returning
When passion first waked a new life through his frame,
And his soul, like the wood that grows precious in burning,
Gave out all its sweets to love’s exquisite flame.
