The mood of the first three lines — The sea is calm tonight The tide is full, the moon lies fair Upon the straights.... is in sharp contrast to the mood of the last three lines — And we are here as on a darkling plain Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight, Where ignorant armies clash by night.
