The use of two separate viewpoints is cleverly used. The first stanza is
the view of a maiden, a young woman whose innocence view of life is yet to
be tainted, a maiden who has freedom and long life ahead. To the sailor,
who has no hope of reaching shore, the ocean is a cruel tool of nature,
that is gray and dreary. There is no innocence left in his view, as he is
appear of Nature's hand at that fateful time.

I thought it was pretty dull and could barely understand what he was
talking about. But thats why i like it.
