“…Long grey beard and glittering eyes..”

I think a blogger as this is a blogging platform, or anybody with a lot of stories to narrate, is like the ancient mariner who stops the wedding guests, mesmerizes them “with his long grey beard and glittering eye.”

here’s a link to Coleridge’s The Ancient Mariner,  a poem that has given so many phrases and idioms we use commonly today 🙂

  1. I remember learning this in school. Never read it after that. There was something about an albatross right? And then the famed ‘water water everywhere’. It was an eerie poem I remember. Thanks for this trigger 🙂
