Oh sleep! it is a gentle thing,Part the Fifth
To Mary Queen the praise be given!
That slid into my soul.
That had so long remained,
And when I awoke, it rained.
My garments all were dank;
And still my body drank.
I was so light—almost
And was a blessed ghost.
It did not come anear;
That were so thin and sere.
And a hundred fire-flags sheen,
And to and fro, and in and out,
And the coming wind did roar more loud,
And the rain poured down from one black cloud;
The thick black cloud was cleft, and still
Like waters shot from some high crag,
A river steep and wide.
Yet now the ship moved on!
The dead men gave a groan.
Nor spake, nor moved their eyes;
To have seen those dead men rise.
Yet never a breeze up blew;
Where they were wont to do:
We were a ghastly crew.

Sometimes all little birds that are,
With their sweet jargoning!
Now like a lonely flute;
That makes the Heavens be mute.
A pleasant noise till noon,
In the leafy month of June,
Singeth a quiet tune.
Yet never a breeze did breathe:
Moved onward from beneath.
From the land of mist and snow,
That made the ship to go.
And the ship stood still also.
Had fixed her to the ocean:
With a short uneasy motion—
With a short uneasy motion.
She made a sudden bound:
And I fell down in a swound.
I have not to declare;
I heard and in my soul discerned
'Is it he?' quoth one, 'Is this the man?
With his cruel bow he laid full low,
'The spirit who bideth by himself
He loved the bird that loved the man
The other was a softer voice,
Quoth he, 'The man hath penance done,
