"What loud uproar bursts from that door! The wedding-guests are there:


But in the garden-bower the bride And bride-maids singing are:

And to teach, by

love and reve

And hark the little vesper bell,
Which biddeth me to prayer!

"O Wedding-Guest! this soul hath been. Alone on a wide, wide sea :

So lonely 'twas, that God himself

Scarce seemed there to be.

"O sweeter than the marriage-feast,

'Tis sweeter far to me,

To walk together to the kirk

With a goodly company !—

"To walk together to the kirk,

And all together pray,

While each to his great Father bends,

Old men, and babes, and loving friends,
And youths and maidens gay!

"Farewell, farewell! but this I tell his own example, To thee, thou Wedding-Guest ! He prayeth well, who loveth well Both man and bird and beast.

rence to all things

that God made and loveth.

"He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all."

The Mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,

Is gone and now the Wedding-Guest
Turned from the Bridegroom's door.
