  1. The allegorical meaning of the poem is to accept death, not out of fear, but as a natural phenomenon and this is the only way to meet God, face-to-face. “Crossing the Bar” is an allegory where the ‘bar’ stands for crossing the boundary between life and death.
    The poet is in favour of death. He calmly accepts death and hopes there be “no moaning of the bar” when he departs.
