The Wedding-Guest stood still, And listens like a three years' child:

Simile; the wedding guest was completely under the control of the mariner


Below the kirk, below the hill,

Below the lighthouse top



The sun came up upon the left,

Out of the sea came he



The bride hath paced into the hall,

Red as a rose is she



And now the storm-blast came,

and he was tyrannous and strong:



With sloping masts and dipping prow,

As who pursued with yell and blow

Still treads the shadow of his foe



The ice was here, the ice was there,

The ice was all around
