The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 3-3

Corona of the Sun during a Solar Eclipse

Originally uploaded by Smithsonian Institution

The western wave was all a-flame.
The day was wellnigh done!
Almost upon the western wave
Rested the broad bright Sun;
When that strange shape drove suddenly
Betwixt us and the Sun.

And straight the Sun was flecked with bars,
(Heaven’s Mother send us grace!)
As if through a dungeon-grate he peered
With broad and burning face.
