The Albatross

Posted in Poetry with tags , on October 21, 2012 by Dylan Thomas Hayden

And a good south wind sprung up behind;
The Albatross did follow,
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariners’ hollo!

In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
It perched for vespers nine;
Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white,
Glimmered the white Moon-shine.

“God save thee, ancient Mariner!
From the fiends, that plague thee thus!—
Why look’st thou so?”—With my cross-bow
I shot the ALBATROSS.

Illustration by Gustave Doré, from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (21 October 1772 – 25 July 1834)
