    Through the line, “there maybe no moaning of the bar”, the poet means to say that when he is crossing the sandbar and transitioning from life to death, there shouldn’t be any grief or sadness about his passing. He wants to accept death in a calm and composed manner and hopes that all his friends and family will not shed any tears of grief on his death. He wants the final journey to be a quiet one.
