Example text

Fly, brother, fly! ’ I woke, and we were sailing on As in a gentle weather: ’Twas night, calm night, the moon was high; The dead men stood together. All stood together on the deck, For a charnel-dungeon fitter: All fix’d on me their stony eyes That in the moon did glitter. The pang, the curse, with which they died, Had never pass’d away: I could not draw my een from theirs Ne turn them up to pray. And in its time the spell was snapt, And I could move my een: I look’d far-forth, but little saw Of what might else be seen.

And still it ner’d and ner’d; And, an it dodg’d a water-sprite, It plung’d and tack’d and veer’d. With throat unslack’d, with black lips bak’d Ne could we laugh, ne wail: Then while thro’ drouth all dumb they stood I bit my arm and suck’d the blood And cry’d, A sail! a sail! With throat unslack’d, with black lips bak’d Agape they hear’d me call: Gramercy! they for joy did grin And all at once their breath drew in As they were drinking all. She doth not tack from side to side – Hither to work us weal Withouten wind, withouten tide She steddies with upright keel.

That day for Harry Gill! That day he wore a riding-coat, But not a whit the warmer he: Another was on Thursday brought, And ere the Sabbath he had three. ’Twas all in vain, a useless matter, And blankets were about him pinn’d; Yet still his jaws and teeth they clatter, Like a loose casement in the wind. And Harry’s flesh it fell away; And all who see him say ’tis plain, That, live as long as live he may, He never will be warm again. ’ A-bed or up, by night or day; His teeth they chatter, chatter still.
