"Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" by Walt Whitman
I like this idea he's brought up that people years apart will enjoy the same views of the same ocean. People are inclined to think only of the first time they themselves experienced something, but here Whitman thinks of everyone experiencing it.
This quote reiterates what Whitman was suggesting above, but here there is a sort of lecturing quality about it, like he is talking to a child.
The amount of detail he goes into with his descriptions is almost ironic; he is talking about how everyone will experience the same thing but here he is describing it so vividly that it almost becomes as if you had already been there too.
He only briefly ponders the notion of time and what the time difference means, but quickly brushes it off as unimportant.
The phrase "eternal float of solution" perhaps has a double meaning, solution being a mixture of water and salt but also solution being an answer to a problem or a question. The sea is unchanging, a constant, so much so that there are answers bound to be within it.
