The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 5-13

Man with a female spirit

Originally uploaded by National Media Museum

How long in that same fit I lay,
I have not to declare;
But ere my living life returned,
I heard and in my soul discerned
Two voices in the air.

‘Is it he?’ quoth one, ‘Is this the man?
By him who died on the cross,
Which his cruel bow he laid full low
The harmless Albatross.”
