The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 7-5

Whirlpool Galaxy (M51): A Classic Beauty (A spiral galaxy 31 million light years from Earth.)

Originally uploaded by Smithsonian Institution

Stunned by that loud and dreadful sound,
Which sky and ocean smote,
Like one that hath been seven days drowned
My body lay afloat;
But swift as dreams, myself I found
Within the Pilot’s boat.

Upon the whirl, where sank the ship,
The boat spun round and round;
And all was still, save that the hill
Was telling of the sound.
