Daily Poem – The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
by Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
IT is an ancient Mariner,
And he stoppeth one of three.
“By thy long grey beard and glittering eye,
Now wherefore stopp’st thou me?
“The Bridegroom’s doors are opened wide,
And I am next of kin;
The guests are met, the feast is set:
May’st hear the merry din.”
