The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Samuel Taylor Coleridge's epic poem of supernatural terrors. A doomed ship sails through ice fields and sudden storms, circled high above by a solitary albatross. The eagle eyed mariner below narrows his gaze, fixes his target and lets loose his bow. His fate, and that of all his crew mates are sealed in an instant.
