I fear thy skinny hand! He singeth loud his godly hymns That he makes in the wood. The Wedding-Guest he beat his breast, Yet he cannot choose but hear ; And thus spake on that ancient man, The bright-eyed Mariner.
How glazed each weary eye, When looking westward, I beheld A something in the sky. The bride hath paced into the hall, Red as a rose is she; Nodding their heads before her goes The merry minstrelsy. And they all dead did lie: Seven days, seven nights, I saw that curse, And yet I could not die.
It raised my hair, it fanned my cheek Like a meadow-gale of spring-- It mingled strangely with my fears, Yet it felt like a welcoming. I moved, and could not feel my limbs: Softly she was going up, And a star or two beside.
With sloping masts and dipping prow, As who pursued with yell and blow Still treads the shadow of his foe, And forward bends his head, The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast, And southward aye we fled.
I closed my lids, and kept them close, And the balls like pulses beat ; For the sky and the sea, and the sea and the sky Lay like a load on my weary eye, And the dead were at my feet. What loud uproar bursts from that door!
A spring of love gushed from my heart, And I blessed them unaware: I cried she tacks no more! Seven days, seven nights, I saw that curse, And yet I could not die. The harbour-bay was clear as glass, So smoothly it was strewn!
A spring of love gushed from my heart, And I blessed them unaware: We were the first that ever burst Into that silent sea.
O happy living things! As if it dodged a water-sprite, It plunged and tacked and veered. Water, water, every where, And all the boards did shrink ; Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink. But soon there breathed a wind on me, Nor sound nor motion made: Almost upon the western wave Rested the broad bright sun; When that strange shape drove suddenly Betwixt us and the sun.
The spell begins to break. And a hundred fire-flags sheen, To and fro they were hurried about!
I moved my lips--the Pilot shrieked And fell down in a fit ; The holy Hermit raised his eyes, And prayed where he did sit. The very deep did rot: Is this indeed The light-house top I see?
No twilight within the courts of the Sun.
The Poem of my Friend has indeed great defects; first, that the principal person has no distinct character, either in his profession of Mariner, or as a human being who having been long under the control of supernatural impressions might be supposed himself to partake of something supernatural; secondly, that he does not act, but is continually acted upon; thirdly, that the events having no necessary connection do not produce each other; and lastly, that the imagery is somewhat too laboriously accumulated.
They stood as signals to the land, Each one a lovely light: The bride hath paced into the hall, Red as a rose is she; Nodding their heads before her goes The merry minstrelsy. Blue, glossy green, and velvet black, They coiled and swam; and every track Was a flash of golden fire.
The Wedding-Guest sat on a stone: Under the water it rumbled on, Still louder and more dread: Till noon we quietly sailed on, Yet never a breeze did breathe: And to and fro, and in and out, The wan stars danced between.
But soon there breathed a wind on me, Nor sound nor motion made: I cried she tacks no more!DLTK's Poems The Rime of Ancient Mariner. by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. PART I It is an ancient Mariner, And he stoppeth one of three.
