Its about feeling lonely and wanting the company of others. Through out the poem the mood is sad and talks about a lonely place, a land were there is no man, just the land and ocean. The speaker is having a sense of loneliness in his daydream and when he is drawn back to reality he his relived, happy to be back in the company of others.

I think he appreciated the sounds that he could hear and could imagine the calmness. But the more he imagined it the more desolate he thought it to be. Lonely. Tiresome. Boring. Then he wanted to be back home in real life, real sounds, adventure.
