This piece lends itself to a setting with music. Not only is the rhythm well focused, the images lend themselves to a melody, Hat off to the romantic chap from Merry Ol' England.

Wonderful rhythm, as if it takes you to smoothly move on quiet and warm waves! the words stretch their longing hands to a reader in order to embrace him or her like tender loveing creature! Perfect construction of a poem. Wave-like construction.
