Definition
decline — typically gradually as with the height of the tide
  • In one little body Thou counterfeit'st a bark, a sea, a wind: For still thy eyes, which I may call the sea, Do ebb and flow with tears; the bark thy body is, Sailing in this salt flood; the winds, thy sighs; Who,—raging with thy tears and they with them,— Without a sudden calm, will overset Thy tempest-tossed body.
    3.5 — Act 3 Scene 5 — An open Gallery to Juliet's Chamber....Garden (55% in)
