Quadrature

High and Dry

You go without taking

My state remains the same

 helpless without you

Abandoned

Anticipation

Return me to you

in you I belong

The  tides  at St Michaels Mount
The Tides are caused by the action of the heavenly bodies, principally the sun and the moon. When they are in line with the earth the attraction is multiplied, announcing spring tides, this corresponds with the period of highest tides ; on the contrary, if the sun and the moon form a right angle (in quadrature), the attraction is reduced and we are in neap tides, the period of lowest tidal movement
