The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought:

Okay >.< I am not the best with stuff like this to be completely honest-most definitely not my strong suit, but diction is a big/valuable part of this stanza. It's a complex diction :P the diction is; So the author must've appreciated nature over material posessions such as wealth. The word "wealth" in this case is not a measure of money, but a measure of positive emotion that comes from memory. the tone is; It's a very happy stanza that reflects off of good memories :) When the poet says "A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company" he's saying he couldn't help but be happy when he's in the company of those "The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee". So the tone is basically glee. the syntax is; reversed. Typical syntax is subject+verb+object, but in the last line "What wealth the show had brought to me" you would typically read as "the show had brought me wealth" but the poet switched it around to give the poem/stanze more diction and rhyme. I hope this helps you Eli :D
