    Once you identify the imagery in this Longfellow poem, write about the effect that it has upon you and your interpretation of the poem. Why might the traveler never return to the shore?

    The tide itself is one of the images. Another is "The little waves, with their soft, white hands
    Effac(ing) the footprints in the sands"

    For some analytical thoughts, see

    Make sure you write about what the poem means to YOU, and what the images bring to your mind.
