‘She springs like a beam on the brow of tide’ is a beautiful line from the poem “Palanquin Bearers” In the line, she (the bride) is compared to a star that is reflected in the soft dew drops. She is so brightly clad that she appears to be like a shining beam of light that is reflected from the surface of dancing waves of the sea.
The phrase brow of the tide is actually used to describe the act of carrying the princess by her palanquin bearers. The palanquin bearers were in the joy that they did not feel her weight when they carry her in the palanquin on their shoulders.
