Rime of the Ancient Mariner Quotes

Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.

He holds him with his glittering eye.

Like a painted ship upon a painted ocean.

The self-same moment I could pray.

The Wedding-Guest sat on a stool.

She hath no soul, nor sense, nor sight.

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell, to thee, my wedding-guest.

It is an ancient Mariner.

In the lone sky they soar’d, and the sails did sigh.

The ancient Mariner inhospitably killeth the pious bird of good omen.

He went like one that hath been stunned.

I bit my arm, I sucked the blood.

The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew.

But the curse liveth for him in the eye of the dead men.

It crack’d and growl’d, and roar’d and howl’d.

Sleep it was a midnight dreary.

And he shone bright, and on the right went down into the sea.

There passed a weary time.

I pass, like night, from land to land.

The Albatross, swift and straight.

And every tongue, through utter drought, was withered at the root.

A thousand thousand slimy things lived on.

Like one, that on a lonesome road.

At length did cross an Albatross.

God save thee, ancient Mariner.

Her lips were red, her looks were free.

The Death-fires danced at night.

And the bay was white with silent light.

I moved my lips — the pilot shriek’d.

He holds him with his glittering eye.

Ah! well-a-day! what evil looks.

The helmsman steered, the ship moved on.

He prayeth best, who loveth best.

Day after day, day after day.

The moving Moon went up the sky.

And never a saint took pity on.

A thousand thousand slimy things.

Beyond the shadow of the ship.

And a thousand thousand slimy things lived.

And ice mast high came floating by.

I looked to Heaven, and tried to pray.

One after one, by the star-dogged Moon.

Then like a pawing horse.

Turned one by one to me.

The blood burned round his icy heart.

And the Spring comes slowly up this way.

The ice was here, the ice was there.

The naked hulk alongside came.

The ice was all around.

A sudden self-born band of death.
