like Gods together, careless of mankind

This line makes refernce to the beautiful land they are in as a heaven of sorts. It seems that Tennyson is making a statement on religion, which is typical of the poet. The speaker here seems to be saying that the "gods" are far removed from us, and care little about what happens to us, while they live in glorious places with no troubles. This is how these men wish to be.
