Quote #4

Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;
Three fields to cross till a farm appears. (7-8)

It is interesting that the farm "appears," that it has the ability to come out of nowhere almost supernaturally, as if it were magical. In addition, the verb comes last and occupies a position of relative prominence, which further emphasizes the magical quality of the farm. This semi-magical aspect of nature was anticipated earlier by the leaping waves.
