The Nightmare Life-in-Death was she.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. III)
        [Apparitions]

A spring of love gushed from my heart,
  And I bless'd them unaware.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. IV) [Blessings]

Alone, alone, all, all alone,
  Alone on a wide, wide sea.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. IV) [Solitude]

The moving moon went up to the sky,
  And nowhere did abide;
    Softly she was going up,
      And a star or two beside.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. IV) [Moon]

O sleep! it is a gentle thing,
  Beloved from pole to pole!
    To Mary Queen the praise be given!
      She sent the gentle sleep from Heaven
        That slid into my soul.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. V, st. 1) [Sleep]

A noise like of a hidden brook
  In the leafy month of June,
    That to the sleeping woods all night
      Singeth a quiet tune.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. V, st. 18)
        [Brooks : Sound]

Like one, that on a lonesome road
  Doth walk in fear and dread,
    And having once turned round, walks on,
      And turns no more his head;
        Because he knows a frightful fiend
          Doth close behind him tread.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. VI) [Fear]

He prayeth best who loveth best
  All things, both great and small.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. VII) [Prayer]

He prayeth well who loveth well
  Both man and bird and beast.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. VII) [Prayer]

So lonely 'twas that God himself
  Scarce seemed there to be.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. VII) [Solitude]

A sadder and a wiser man,
  He rose the morrow morn.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. VII, last st.)
        [Experience]

He went like one that hath been stunn'd,
  And is of sense forlorn:
    A sadder and a wiser man,
      He rose the morrow morn.
      - The Ancient Mariner (pt. VII, last stanza)
        [Misfortune]

And what if all of animated nature
  Be but organic harps diversely framed,
    That tremble into thought, as o'er them sweeps,
      Plastic and vast, one intellectual breeze,
        At once the soul of each, and God of all?
      - The Eolian Harp [Creation]

An instinctive taste teaches men to build their churches in flat countries with spire steeples, which, as they cannot be referred to any other object, point as with silent finger to the sky and stars.
      - The Friend [Churches]

The dwarf sees farther than the giant, when he has the giant's shoulders to mount on.
      - The Friend (sect. I, essay VIII) [Ability]

The blue and bright-eyed floweret of the brook,
  Hope's gentle gem, the sweet Forget-me-not.
      - The Keepsake [Forget-me-nots]

The knight's bones are dust,
  And his good sword rust;
    His soul is with the saints, I trust.
      - The Knight's Tomb [Soldiers]

"Most musical, most melancholy" bird!
  A melancholy bird! Oh! idle thought!
    In nature there is nothing melancholy.
      - The Nightingale [Nightingales]

While many a glowworm in the shade
  Lights up her love torch.
      - The Nightingale [Glowworms]

'Tis the merry nightingale
  That crowds, and hurries, and precipitates
    With fast thick warble his delicious notes,
      As he were fearful that an April night
        Would be too short for him to utter forth
          His love-chant, and disburthen his full soul
            Of all its music!
      - The Nightingale (l.43) [Nightingales]

In the hexameter rises the fountain's silvery column:
  In the pentameter aye falling in melody back.
      - The Ovidian Elegiac Metre [Poetry]

Water, water, everywhere,
  And all the boards did shrink;
    Water, water, everywhere,
      Nor any drop to drink.
        The very deep did rot: O Christ!
          That ever this should be!
            Yes, slimy things did crawl with legs
              Upon the slimy sea.
      - The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
         (pt. II, st. 9) [Water]

Those holies of themselves a shape
  As of an arbor took.
      - The Three Graves (pt. IV, st. 24) [Holly]

A mother is a mother still,
  The holiest thing alive.
      - The Three Graves (st. 10) [Motherhood]

Never, believe me,
  Appear the Immortals,
    Never alone.
      - The Visits of the Gods,
        imitated from Schiller [Gods]
