The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 2-3

Winter quarters of the ‘Alert’; Cape Rawson in the distance; Mr White and ‘Nelly’

Originally uploaded by National Maritime Museum

The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,
The furrow followed free;
We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.

Down dropt the breeze, the sails dropt down,
‘Twas sad as sad could be;
And we did speak only to break
The silence of the sea!
