The Rime of the Ancient Mariner 2-4

Mushroom ice formation, 1912

Originally uploaded by State Library of New South Wales

All in a hot and copper sky,
The bloody Sun, at noon,
Right up above the mast did stand,
No bigger than the Moon.

Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.
