    Tennyson, through his poem, exhorts us to accept death calmly by evoking faith in religion and God. He says in order to meet the creator face-to-face one has to cross the boundary between life and death. Death is to be accepted as natural, a part of transition from life to death. He creates the image of a ship crossing a sandbar into the deeper waters of the ocean and says that death is like this, an unknown territory but one still goes on, having faith in God.
