Quote #4

And a voice less loud, thro' its joys and fears,
Than the two hearts beating each to each (11-12)

It is strange that the speaker describes two hearts beating really loudly. It seems so strange, in fact, that we can't help but assume he's imagining it. That's sort of beside the point, however, since so much of the poem has been about the speaker's unique perception of events.
