The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 4-3

Man with the spirit of his helper

Originally uploaded by National Media Museum

I looked upon the rotting sea,
And drew my eyes away;
I looked upon the rotting deck,
And there the dead men lay.

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.
