IN SEVEN PARTS.
<span style="cray">How a Ship having passed the Line was driven by Storms to the coldtry towards the South Pole; and how from thence she made her courseto the tropical Latitude of the Great Paci?c O; and of the strahings that befell; and in what mahe A Marinere came back tohis own try.</span>
It is an a Marinere,
Aoppeth one of three:
"By thy long grey beard and thy glittering eye
"Now wherefore stoppest me?
"The Bridegrooms doors are opend wide
"And I am of kin;
"The Guests are met, the Feast is set,--
"Mayst hear the merry di></a>n.--
But still he holds the wedding-guest--
There was a Ship, quoth he--
"Nay, if thoust got a laughsome tale,
"Marinere! e with me."
He holds him with his skinny hand,
Quoth he, there w<cite></cite>as a Ship--
"Now get thee hehou grey-beard Loon!
"Or my Staff shall make thee skip."
He holds him with his glittering eye--
The wedding guest stood still
And listens like a three years child;
The Marih his will.
The wedding-guest sate on a stone,
He ot chuse but hear:
And thus spake on tha<mark>?９９ｌiｂ.</mark>t a man,
The bright-eyed Marinere.
The Ship was cheerd, the Harbour cleard--
Merrily did we drop
Below the Kirk, below the Hill,
Below the Light-house top.
The Sun came up upon the left,
Out of the Sea came he:
And he shone bright, and on the right
Went down into the Sea.
Higher and higher every day,
Till over the mast at noon--
The wedding-guest here beat his breast,
For he heard the loud bassoon.
The Bride hath pato the Hall,
Red as a rose is she;
Nodding their heads before her goes
The merry Minstralsy.
The wedding-guest he beat his breast,
Yet he ot chuse but hear:
And thus spake on that a Man,
The bright-eyed Marinere.
Listen, Stranger! Storm and Wind,
A Wind and Tempest strong!
For days and weeks it playd us freaks--
Like Chaff we drove along.
Listen, Stranger! Mist and Snow,
And it grew wondrous cauld:
And Ice mast-high came ?oating by
As green as Emerauld.
And thro the drifts the s藏书网nowy clifts
Did send a dismal sheen;
Ne shapes of men s we ken--
The Ice was all between.
The Ice was here, t<cite>?</cite>he Ice was there,
The Ice was all around:
It crackd and growld, and roard and howld--
Like noises of a swound.
At length did cross an Albatross,
Thh the Fog it came;
And an it were a Christian Soul,
We haild it in Gods name.
The Marineres gave it biscuit-worms,
And round and round it ?ew:
The Ice did split with a Thu;
The Helmsman steerd us thro.
And a good south wind sprung up behind,
The Albatross did follow;
And every day for food or play
Came to the Marineres hollo!
In mist or cloud on mast or shroud
It perchd for vespers nine,
Whiles all the night thro fog-smoke white
Glimmerd the white moon-shine.
"God save thee, a Marinere!
"From the ?ends that plague thee thus--
"Why lookst thou so?"--with my cross bow
I shot the Albatross.
