How a Ship having passed the Line was driven by Storms to the cold Country towards the South Pole; and how from thence she made her course to the tropical Latitude of the Great Pacific Ocean; and of the strange things that befell; and in what manner the Ancyent Marinere came back to his own Country.
IN SEVEN PARTS.
It is an ancyent Marinere,
And he stoppeth one of three:
"By thy long grey beard and thy glittering eye. "Now wherefore stoppest me?
"The Bridegroom's doors are open'd wide "And I am next of kin;
