Interesting Poetry – Rime of the Ancient Mariner

I love stories in the form of poetry and this one’s more special than most. Does this quote seem familiar to you?

Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink ;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.

Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Samuel Talyor Coleridge

If you’re familiar with Magic: the Gathering, you may recognize two more. Either way, this is a great read. It’s a pity I can’t really find a better quote to show it off… but then it is quite long.
