“The moving Moon went up the sky, “I moved, and could not feel my limbs: 305 And no where did abide:
I was so light — almost Softly she was going up,
I thought that I had died in sleep, And a star or two beside
And was a blessèd ghost. der beams bemocked the sultry main, "And soon I heard a roaring wind: Like April hoar-frost spread;
It did not come anear; But where the ship's huge shadow lay, But with its sound it shook the sails, The charmed water burnt alway
That were so thin and sere. A still and awful red.
“The upper air burst into life! “Beyond the shadow of the ship,
And a hundred fire-flags sheen, I watched the water-snakes:
To and fro they were hurried about; 315 They moved in tracks of shining white, And to and fro, and in and out, And when they reared, the elfish light 275
The wan stars danced between. Fell off in hoary Aakes.
"And the coming wind did roar more loud, "Within the shadow of the ship
And the sails did sigh like sedge; I watched their rich attire:
And the rain poured down from one black Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,
cloud; They coiled and swam; and every track 280
The Moon was at its edge. Was a flash of golden fire.
“The thick black cloud was cleft, and still "O happy living things! no tongue
The Moon was at its side: Their beauty might declare:
Like waters shot from some high crag, A spring of love gushed from my heart,
The lightning fell with never a jag,
A river steep and wide.
“The loud wind never reached the ship, “The self-same moment I could pray;
Yet now the ship moved on! And from my neck so free
Beneath the lightning and the Moon
The dead men gave a groan.
"They groaned, they stirred, they all up
rose, Part V
Nor spake, nor moved their eyes;
It had been strange, even in a dream, "Oh, sleep! it is a gentle thing,
To have seen those dead men rise.
“The helmsman steered, the ship moved She sent the gentle sleep from Heaven, 295
on; That slid into my soul.
Yet never a breeze up-blew; “The silly buckets on the deck,
The mariners all 'gan work the ropes, That had so long remained,
Where they were wont to do: I dreamt that they were filled with dew; | They raised their limbs like lifeless tools And when I awoke, it rained.
We were a ghastly crew. "My lips were wet, my throat was cold, "The body of my brother's son My garments all were dank;
Stood by me, knee to knee: Sure I had drunken in my dreams,
The body and I pulled at one rope, And still my body drank.
But he said nought to me."
“I fear thee, ancient Mariner!”
385 “Be calm, thou Wedding-Guest!
With a short uneasy motion 'Twas not those souls that Aed in pain, Backwards and forwards half her length, Which to their corses came again,
With a short uneasy motion. But a troop of spirits blest:
"Then like a pawing horse let go, “For when it dawned they dropped their She made a sudden bound: arms,
It Aung the blood into my head, And clustered round the mast;
And I fell down in a swound. Sweet sounds rose slowly through their mouths,
"How long in that same fit I lay, And from their bodies passed.
I have not to declare;
But ere my living life returned,
Two voices in the air.
“ 'Is it he?' quoth one, 'is this the man?
By Him who died on cross,
The harmless Albatross.
“'The spirit who bideth by himself With their sweet jargoning!
In the land of mist and snow,
He loved the bird that loved the man “And now 'twas like all instruments, Who shot him with his bow.' Now like a lonely Alute; And now it is an angel's song,
“The other was a softer voice,
365 That makes the heavens be mute.
As soft as honey-dew:
Quoth he, 'The man hath penance done,
“'But tell me, tell me! speak again “Till noon we quietly sailed on,
Thy soft response renewing Yet never a breeze did breathe:
What makes that ship drive on so fast? Slowly and smoothly went the ship,
What is the ocean doing?' Moved onward from beneath.
"We drifted o'er the harbor-bar, And I with sobs did pray 'O let me be awake, my God! Or let me sleep alway.'
"I woke, and we were sailing on,
high; The dead men stood together. "All stood together on the deck, For a charnel-dungeon fitter: All fixed on me their stony eyes, That in the Moon did glitter. "The pang, the curse, with which they
died, Had never passed away: I could not draw my eyes from theirs, 440 Nor turn them up to pray. “And now this spell was snapt: once more I viewed the ocean green, And looked far forth, yet little saw Of what had else been seen
"Like one, that on a lonesome road
