The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 1-3

View of the harbour, Montreal, QC, 1884

He holds him with his skinny hand,
“There was a ship,” quoth he.
“Hold off! unhand me, greybeard loon!”
Eftsoons his hand dropt he.

He holds him with his glittering eye -
The wedding-guest stood still,
And listens like a three years’ child:
The Mariner hath his will.
