"I fear thee, a Marinere!
"I fear thy skinny hand;
"And thou art long and lank and brown
"As is the ribbd Sea-sand.
"I fear thee and thy glittering eye
"And thy skinny hand so brown"--
Fear not, fear not, thou wedding guest!
This body dropt not down.
Alone, alone, all all alone
Alone on the wide wide Sea;
And Christ would take no pity on
My soul in ago<bdi>藏书网</bdi>ny.
The many men so beautiful,
And they all dead did lie!
And a million million slimy things
Livd on--and so did I.
I lookd ubbr>藏书网</abbr>poting Sea,
And drew my eyes away;
I lookd upon the eldritch deck,
And there the dead men lay.
I lookd to Heaven, and tryd to pray;
But or ever a prayer had gusht,
A wicked whisper came and made
My heart as dry as dust.
I y lids ahem close,
Till 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.
The cold sweat melted from their limbs,
, ne reek did they;
The look with which they lookd on me,
Had never passd away.
An orphans curse would drag to Hell
A spirit from on high:
But O! more horrible than that
Is the curse in a dead mans eye!
Seven days, seven nights I saw that curse
A I could not die.
The moving Moo up the sky
And no where d<s></s>id abide:
Softly she was going up
And a star or two beside--
Her beams bemockd the sultry main
Like m frosts yspread;
But where the ships huge shadow lay,
The charmed water burnt alway
A still and awful red.
Beyond the shadow of the ship
I watchd the water-snakes:
They movd in tracks of shining white;
And when they reard, the el?sh light
Fell off in hoary ?akes.
Within the shadow of the sh<big>９9ｌｉb?</big>ip
I watchd their rich attire:
Blue, glossy green, a black
They coild and swam; an<samp>.</samp>d every track
Was a ?ash of golden ?re.
O happy living things! no tongue
Their beauty might declare:
A spring of love gusht from my heart,
And I blessd them unaware!
Sure my kind saint took pity on me,
And I blessd them unaware.
The self-same moment I could pray;
And from my neck so free
The Albatross fell off, and sank
Like lead into the sea.
