Four times fifty living men,/(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)/With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,/They dropped down one by one. (stanza 51) The sun sets, the stars come out, and every one of the mariner's shipmates dies after cursing him with their eyes.
'I fear thee, ancient Mariner!/I fear thy skinny hand!/And thou art long, and lank, and brown,/As is the ribbed sea-sand. (stanza 53) The wedding guest fears that the mariner also died on the ship and that he is being visited by the mariner's spirit.
I looked to Heaven, and tried to pray:/But or ever a prayer had gusht,/A wicked whisper came, and made/my heart as dry as dust. (stanza 58) The mariner attempts to pray for deliverance but finds that he is unable to.
Within the shadow of the ship/I watched their rich attire:/Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,/They coiled and swam; and every track/Was a flash of golden fire. (stanza 65) The mariner sees strange snakes coiling and swimming in the water.
The self same moment I could pray;/And from my neck so free/The Albatross fell off, and sank/Like lead into the sea. (stanza 67) After blessing the water snakes, the mariner finds he is able to pray again and as a result, the body of the albatross falls off his neck and sinks into the sea.
Till noon we quietly sailed on,/Yet never a breeze did breathe:/Slowly and smoothly went the ship,/Moved onward from beneath. (stanza 86) After a miraculous rain, the dead crew rises up and resumes work without saying a word. Eventually, they manage to return to the place they set sail from.
