I just listened to The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge while reading along. An impressive poem! Download the audio book and view the complete text with notes if you want to.
Here’s a notable little excerpt:
O sweeter than the marriage-feast,
‘Tis sweeter far to me,
To walk together to the kirk
With a goodly company !– To walk together to the kirk,
And all together pray,
While each to his great Father bends,
Old men, and babes, and loving friends
And youths and maidens gay !
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.
He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small ;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.
