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

[blocks in formation]

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; “ The Guests are met, the Feast is set,

“May'st hear the merry din,

But still he holds the wedding-guest

There was a Ship, quoth he-
“Nay, if thou'st got a laughsome tale,

“ Marinere ! come with me."


He holds him with his skinny hand,

Quoth he, there was a Ship-
"Now get thee hence, thou grey-beard Loon !


Staff shall make thee skip.

* Or

He holds him with his glittering eye

The wedding guest stood still
And listens like a three year's child ;

The Marinere hath his will.

The wedding-guest sate on a stone,

He cannot chuse but hear :
And thus spake on that ancyent man,

The bright-eyed Marinere.
