The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
This storyboard does not have a description.

The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast, And southward aye we fled. Listen, stranger! Mist and snow, And it grew wondrous cold: And ice mast-high came floating by, As green as emerald.
At length did cross an albatross, Thorough the fog it came; As if it had been a Christian soul, We hailed it in God's name.. And a good south wind sprung up behind; The albatross did follow, And every day, for food or play, Came to the mariners' hollo!
And I had done a hellish thing, And it would work 'em woe: For all averred, I had killed the bird That made the breeze to blow. Ah wretch! said they, the bird to slay, That made the breeze to blow!
The many men, so beautiful! And they all dead did lie: And a thousand thousand slimy things Lived on; and so did I.
The mariner, whose eye is bright, Whose beard with age is hoar, Is gone: and now the wedding-guest Turned from the bridegroom's door. He went like one that hath been stunned, And is of sense forlorn: A sadder and a wiser man, He rose the morrow morn.
