Rime of the Ancient Mariner

This storyboard does not have a description.
The ice was here, the ice was there, The ice was all around : It cracked and growled, and roared and howled, Like noises in a swound ! At length did cross an Albatross, Thorough the fog it came ;
We stuck, nor breath nor motion ; As idle as a painted ship Upon a painted ocean. ... Instead of the cross, the Albatross About my neck was hung.’
The souls did from their bodies fly,— They fled to bliss or woe ! And every soul, it passed me by, Like the whiz of my cross-bow!'
The self-same moment I could pray; And from my neck so free The Albatross fell off, and sank Like lead into the sea.
Oh! dream of joy! is this indeed The light-house top I see? Is this the hill? is this the kirk? Is this mine own countree? We drifted o'er the harbour-bar, And I with sobs did pray— O let me be awake, my God! Or let me sleep alway.
Farewell, farewell! but this I tell To thee, thou Wedding-Guest! He prayeth well, who loveth well Both man and bird and beast.
