Gustave Dore (1832 -1883)

"About, about, in reel and rout
The death-fires danced at night;
The water, like a witch's oils,
Burnt green, and blue and white.

And some in dreams assur'ed were
Of the Spirit that plagued us so;
Nine fathom deep he had followed us
From the land of mist and snow."


The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1798
