Beyond the shadow of the ship,I watch’d the water-snakes:They moved in tracks of shining white,And when they rear’d, the elfish lightFell off in hoary flakes.
Within the shadow of the shipI watch’d their rich attire:Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,They coil’d and swam; and every track Was a flash of golden fire.
—Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Coleridge

Beyond the shadow of the ship,
I watch’d the water-snakes:
They moved in tracks of shining white,
And when they rear’d, the elfish light
Fell off in hoary flakes.

Within the shadow of the ship
I watch’d their rich attire:

Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,
They coil’d and swam; and every track
 Was a flash of golden fire.


—Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Coleridge
