[1.] For while the tired waves, vainly breaking,
Seem here no painful inch to gain,
[2.] Far back through creeks and inlets making,
Came, silent, flooding in, the main.
[3.] And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light,
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly,
But westward, look, the land is bright.
How do you determine/deduce the correct order of words? I tried to reshuffle the bolded as follows:
1. For while the the tired waves + seem + vainly breaking + here, no painful inch to gain.
2. Did I reconstruct [2.] correctly as follows?
The main + Came, silent, flooding in + Far back through creeks and + making + inlets.
3. How do you reorganise the last four lines?
When daylight comes, + the light + comes in + And not by eastern windows only,
+ I'd keep the rest the same. Is this right?
