The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 6-10

World’s Columbian Exposition: Transportation Building, Chicago, United States, 1893.

Originally uploaded by Brooklyn Museum

Each corse lay flat, lifeless and flat,
And, by the holy rood!
A man all light, a seraph-man,
On every corse there stood.

This seraph-band, each waved his hand:
It was a heavenly sight!
They stood as signals to the land,
Each one a lovely light;

This seraph-band, each waved his hand,
No voice did they impart -
No voice; but oh! the silence sank
Like music on my heart.
