The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 1-10

Aurora traversing loose pack ice entering the Durville Sea, Dec. 1913

Originally uploaded by State Library of New South Wales

It ate the food it ne’er had eat,
And round and round it flew.
The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
The helmsman steered us through!

And a good south wind sprung up behind;
The albatross did follow,
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariner’s hollo!
