TIDE GAUGE

The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls
BY HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW


The tide rises, the tide falls,
The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;
Along the sea-sands damp and brown
The traveller hastens toward the town,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

Darkness settles on roofs and walls,
But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;
The little waves, with their soft, white hands,
Efface the footprints in the sands,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls
Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;
The day returns, but nevermore
Returns the traveller to the shore,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

Tide gauge is placed inside this domed building

One can actually see the highest tide levels on the wall in #1.
I miss the sea - I was brought up with it so closeby
