High School, Senior English

He prayeth best who loveth best 

All things both great and small

For the dear God who loveth us,

He made and loveth all.

              --Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Chuck, that verse teaches me that Jesus came not to condemn, nor should I; but he came to save and I should teach of his saving grace.

KCBob, it is interesting to me that a very high percentage of people who remember the poem recall it for the "Water, water everywhere..." lines; yet I think these lines are the best in the whole long tale.

Shoot, water, water, etc. - well, to begin with it doesn't tell us anything, and secondly, out West here we don't have any. So I more than agree with you - these are MUCH better lines. Have a nice Labor Day tomorrow.

Marsha, the drought in your area saddens me, for though it is leagues away from our bailiwick it affects us all. May things improve soonest.
