Briefly give a description of the nature described in the poem ‘Meeting at Night’.

The poet Robert Browning fantastically gives a fine description of the nature at night while describing the journey of a lover. The poem starts with the description of landscape—“The grey sea and the long black land”. At that time the moon is either rising or setting as it is "low" on the horizon line. The moon looks half and yellow. The waves are tossing their heads in fiery ringlets as if they have been risen from sleep by the movement of the boat in the sea-water. Then the lover reaches on the slushy shore. The poet describes the sea-beach as “warm sea-scented beach” which the lover has to cross. Thus Browning picturizes the nature in this poem.
