When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears, Did he smile his work to see?
Page 203 - The sun came up upon the left, Out of the sea came he! And he shone bright, and on the right Went down into the sea. Higher and higher every day, Till over the mast at noon " The Wedding-Guest here beat his breast, For he heard the loud bassoon.
