The cyclic movement of the ocean

A person should go out on the water on a fine day to a small distance from a beautiful coast,
if he would see Nature really smile. 
Never does she look so delightful,
as when the sun is brightly reflected by the water,
while the waves are gently rippling,
and the prospect receives life and animation from the glancing transit of an occasional row-boat,
and the quieter motion of a few small vessels. 
But the land must be well in sight;
not only for its own sake,
but because the immensity and awfulness of a mere sea-view would ill accord with the other parts of the glittering and joyous scene. 

Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare
