Re: AmauriceBot not updating hiscores[edit source]

It looks like the Bot tried updating until the February 28th, but your user page was still requesting the highscores for the user "SburbanRever", which did not exist. The Bot tries for just over a week and if it failed every day for a user page, it stops try and add the page to it's dead list.

I see that you changed you user page to refer to "ThePsionic" on March 2nd, which does exist, so I will remove your user page from the dead list so it should update the next run today. Smile Amaurice talk 19:31, March 4, 2014 (UTC)

Signature[edit source]

In my user preferences, this is what I have:
{{SUBST:User:ChaoticShadow/Sig|{{SUBST:CURRENTTIME}} {{SUBST:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{SUBST:CURRENTDAY}}, {{SUBST:CURRENTYEAR}} (UTC)}}

Now, for my signature, I have this:
{{User:ChaoticShadow/SigReal|{{{1|}}}}}

Now, the {{{1|}}} is replaced by {{SUBST:CURRENTTIME}} {{SUBST:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{SUBST:CURRENTDAY}}, {{SUBST:CURRENTYEAR}} (UTC) in my signature.

So I'd suggest you do
<span style="color:#416600;">{{{1|}}}-{{{2|}}}-{{{3|}}}</span><br><span style="color:#416600;">{{{4|}}} UTC </span>

and have
{{Template:Signatures/Everystat13|{{CURRENTDAY2}}|{{CURRENTMONTH}}|{{CURRENTYEAR}}{{CURRENTTIME}} (UTC)}} in your user preferences. Try it out.

Not an issue right now. And the data itself shouldn't get anywhere near 2mb. I did some estimate calculations and it's looking like 30K items the way we have it set up will be ~1.2mb. It's the post-expand include size on User:InvalidCards/i that might be the problem. Currently, it's at 104kb with ~900 items. MolMan 22:58, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

┌───┘
┌──────┘
┌─────────┘

You could make a second list of tables to read off of for the big list. Create a new variable called something like data_tables_all that will hold only the tables you want to have display on your /i page. Also, if you decide to do that, you can do it without index keys; e.g.
local data_tables_all = {
	prifddinas_2,
	misc,
	treasure_hunter
}

┌───┘
┌──────┘
┌─────────┘

You'll then need to change the function at the bottom to:
function all_tables()
	local ret_table = {}
	local function comp(a,b)
		return a[1] < b[1]
	end
	for j, w in ipairs(data_tables_all) do
		for i, v in ipairs(w) do
			ret_table[#ret_table+1] = v
		end
	end
	table.sort(ret_table,comp)
	return ret_table
end

┌───┘
┌──────┘
┌─────────┘

The first table will still need to keep the ['Sort keys'], though. Because it still has to read parameters and check if a table for them exists. MolMan 23:13, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

T:SkillAchievementTable updated[edit source]

Hi, I updated the SA table template so show some more stuff, f.i. a comp cape, quest cape etc. And instead of showing the max cape it will show the highest possible milestone cape now. Tell me what you think of it. Also there's a handy test page to quickly test/see stuff with it: my sandbox. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 16:30, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

The milestone capes broke it, so I removed those and it will show Max cape instead again. But now it's required to use the comped param, in your case set to no. (As is my case btw :P) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:43, January 12, 2015 (UTC)
Nvm, it's not required to use the comp param. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 01:28, January 12, 2015 (UTC)

T:SkillAchievementTable question[edit source]

Should I remove the expert cape for each single skillachievement or should it stay? Because the expert cape itself is already shown in the table. The shard would stay ofcourse.

CompCapeReqs template[edit source]

I don't know if you're interested, but I made a template for the Comp cape requirements: User:Salix/CompCapeReqs. Documentation is included. Trimmed comp cape reqs are not included, I'm working on a seperate template for those, User:Salix/TrimmedCompCapeReqs.

RE: Comp cape reqs[edit source]

Those are not mentioned on the Comp Cape page. Because you need to use piety during Nomad's Requiem and you unlock piety after Camelot training room. And Curse of Zaros is needed for getting all kudos at Varrock museum. And it is only 17 recipes in the shop? I may have misread that one. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:39, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

Apparently there are 26 recipes (just checked), I forgot 4 of them >.< but I had 22 (should be 26) because that's the total of recipes including the ones from Daemonheim. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:43, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

Trade floor guards[edit source]

Regarding this, in which room did you lock them up? To my knowledge, only one or two of the four rooms work: to keep the guards there, they must be able to run north and south at will. The other rooms only have a single square available next to the door, making them unable to move, which will make them 'teleport' back to their initial spawn point after a while (and this has always been the case).

The fuck is wrong with you? It must be the fact that you're Dutch, thus you have a different set of cultural values from North Americans. Defending bronies - grown-ass men watching a show meant for little girls - then banning me for explaining how they're legitimately mentally ill? Get some fucking common sense for Christ's sake and learn to properly moderate a discussion. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, and you're the prime example of that.

Re: Exchange pages & module icons[edit source]

Gaz is sort of correct, but there's a history to why we've ended up in this situation which is kind of dull and boils down to Forum:Change to Exchange icons never being fully implemented. For some reason furniture retained the original rule in RS:IMG where the flatpack icon kept it's suffix, although some images were moved to icon.

Are you able to finish moving the images as that forum set out? It'd be nice to be able to remove icons from exchange modules, but I haven't because they're sort of still required if I were to fix the bug as it stands. cqm 16:43, 23 Feb 2016 (UTC) (UTC)

RE:DT Variant template[edit source]

I imagine this would be something like {{Dgvariant}}, but that would require all the DT bosses to have the following formatted name: "Monster (Dominion Tower)" or something like that. However I already see issues with bosses that are combined in DT, like Flambeed, Agrith-Na-Na and Dessourt and etc. So I guess I'll have to make it smarter than that ;). Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:47, March 3, 2016 (UTC)

I know they will get seperate pages. Is there already a boss with a seperate DT page that I can test it with? Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:54, March 3, 2016 (UTC)
Yup. :) I couldn't just copy and pasta the Dgvariant, because Daemonheim doesn't have a space and Dominion Tower does, so I had to be creative. ;) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:15, March 3, 2016 (UTC)
It will now also work for the combined DT boss and seperate quest bosses of that combined DT boss. See {{DTvariant/doc}} for how to fill in the template for those cases. :) Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 09:34, March 3, 2016 (UTC)

DT monster stats[edit source]

Hi! Unfortunately, nearly all Dominion Tower monsters aren't found on the actual bestiary, so we're missing lifepoints and skill stats. I can still get levels and armour and weakness and all the other good stuff from the cache (you can see that yourself at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16076024/npcs.json), but currently no bestiary stuff. Kinda sucks, but at least lifepoints are something that someone (maybe you?!) could just go through and do a couple hours of DT/rumble/etc and note down the lifepoints. Note that there are often differences between rumble and regular DT versions of monsters. ʞooɔ 00:29, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

Life points and skill stats should only differ for phased monsters (e.g. Koschei, who only appears in his final form in rumble). The main difference between rumble and regular is that most of the special attacks aren't used. The only other major difference I can think of is that Char isn't affected by her usual damage cap, but I think that's serverside anyway. MolMan 00:34, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

Something something Dominion Tower[edit source]

So, why did you decide to plan to split every Dominion Tower boss into a separate page for that version, like you did for Nomad (Dominion Tower)? I thought that all versions of a monster belong on the same page.

Neutralino (talk) 20:12, March 4, 2016 (UTC)


Interesting. I see how granularity can be worked with and around.

AWB Usage[edit source]

  1. Please fix the contributions of your bot. I'm not sure what it was meant to do, but whatever regex you used is severely broken. I've never seen any bot break this badly, and managing to violate RS:DDD in the process.
  2. Please read over RS:AWB, specifically the regulations which your bot does not comply with due to it's redirect talk page (completely unsuitable for an AWB account) and the fact that the shutdown link is for the incorrect account.

If you need any help with regexes please ask in the future, or at the very least make a number of test edits before running a task of this magnitude. Remember that you are responsible for any and all edits made by your accounts. cqm 00:42, 6 Mar 2016 (UTC) (UTC)

Re: GEMW page creator[edit source]

It's purely because that's what we use in the other scripts that query the RS API, such as the exchange update. I went with something that parsed the returned JSON (so not yahoo) and worked at the time of creation. Alloworigin seems promising, but as it notes in the docs it's currently unstable due to it being on a test server. Given our rather low usage it's potentially an acceptable trade off, but long term I'd like to do it via Wikia's servers in a similar way to how #hs works. cqm 10:42, 1 Apr 2016 (UTC) (UTC)

Bot flag on PT wiki[edit source]

Hello! A few days ago, we at the Portuguese wiki had TyBot help us with some maintenance tasks. We chose to get the recent changes page flooded instead of waiting for a bot flag on that account. It might never be necessary, but we agreed to give a bot flag to the english wiki's main bots to avoid that happening again, should they ever perform edits on our wiki. As such, and as a part of our recent efforts to revitalize the wiki and bring it closer to the english one, we'd like to invite you to create a userpage for your bot there, so that we can request bot flags.

Rime of the Ancient Mariner[edit source]

Part I

It is an ancient mariner
And he stoppeth one of three.
--"By thy long grey beard and glittering eye,
Now wherefore stoppest thou me?

The bridegroom's doors are opened wide,
And I am next of kin;
The guests are met, the feast is set:
Mayst hear the merry din."

He holds him with his skinny hand,
"There was a ship," quoth he.
"Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"
Eftsoons his hand dropped he.

He holds him with his glittering eye--
The wedding-guest stood still,
And listens like a three-years' child:
The mariner hath his will.

The wedding-guest sat on a stone:
He cannot choose but hear;
And thus spake on that ancient man,
The bright-eyed mariner.

"The ship was cheered, the harbour cleared,
Merrily did we drop
Below the kirk, below the hill,
Below the lighthouse top.

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.

The bride hath paced into the hall,
Red as a rose is she;
Nodding their heads before her goes
The merry minstrelsy.

The wedding-guest he beat his breast,
Yet he cannot choose but hear;
And thus spake on that ancient man,
The bright-eyed mariner.

"And now the storm-blast came, and he
Was tyrannous and strong;
He struck with his o'ertaking wings,
And chased us south along.

With sloping masts and dipping prow,
As who pursued with yell and blow
Still treads the shadow of his foe,
And forward bends his head,
The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast,
And southward aye we fled.

Listen, stranger! Mist and snow,
And it grew wondrous cold:
And ice mast-high came floating by,
As green as emerald.

And through the drifts the snowy clifts
Did send a dismal sheen:
Nor shapes of men nor beasts we ken--
The ice was all between.

The ice was here, the ice was there,
The ice was all around:
It cracked and growled, and roared and howled,
Like noises in a swound!

At length did cross an albatross,
Thorough the fog it came;
As if it had been a Christian soul,
We hailed it in God's name.

It ate the food it ne'er had eat,
And round and round it flew.
The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
The helmsman steered us through!

And a good south wind sprung up behind;
The albatross did follow,
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariners' hollo!

In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
It perched for vespers nine;
Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white,
Glimmered the white moon-shine."

"God save thee, ancient mariner!
From the fiends, that plague thee thus!--
Why lookst thou so?" "With my crossbow
I shot the albatross.

Part II

The sun now rose upon the right:
Out of the sea came he,
Still hid in mist, and on the left
Went down into the sea.

And the good south wind still blew behind,
But no sweet bird did follow,
Nor any day for food or play
Came to the mariners' hollo!

And I had done an hellish thing,
And it would work 'em woe:
For all averred, I had killed the bird
That made the breeze to blow.
Ah wretch! said they, the bird to slay,
That made the breeze to blow!

Nor dim nor red, like God's own head,
The glorious sun uprist:
Then all averred, I had killed the bird
That brought the fog and mist.
'Twas right, said they, such birds to slay,
That bring the fog and mist.

The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,
The furrow followed free;
We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.

Down dropped the breeze, the sails dropped down,
'Twas sad as sad could be;
And we did speak only to break
The silence of the sea!

All in a hot and copper sky,
The bloody sun, at noon,
Right up above the mast did stand,
No bigger than the moon.

Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.

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

The very deeps did rot: O Christ!
That ever this should be!
Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs
Upon the slimy sea.

About, about, in reel and rout
The death-fires danced at night;
The water, like a witch's oils,
Burnt green, and blue and white.

And some in dreams assured were
Of the spirit that plagued us so;
Nine fathom deep he had followed us
From the land of mist and snow.

And every tongue, through utter drought,
Was withered at the root;
We could not speak, no more than if
We had been choked with soot.

Ah! wel-a-day! what evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the albatross
About my neck was hung.

Part III

There passed a weary time. Each throat
Was parched, and glazed each eye.
A weary time! A weary time!
How glazed each weary eye,
When looking westward, I beheld
A something in the sky.

At first it seemed a little speck,
And then it seemed a mist;
It moved and moved, and took at last
A certain shape, I wist.

A speck, a mist, a shape, I wist!
And still it neared and neared:
As if it dodged a water sprite,
It plunged and tacked and veered.

With throats unslaked, with black lips baked,
We could nor laugh nor wail;
Through utter drouth all dumb we stood!
I bit my arm, I sucked the blood,
And cried, A sail! a sail!

With throats unslaked, with black lips baked,
Agape they heard me call:
Gramercy! they for joy did grin,
And all at once their breath drew in,
As they were drinking all.

See! see! (I cried) she tacks no more!
Hither to work us weal;
Without a breeze, without a tide,
She steadies with upright keel!

The western wave was all aflame.
The day was well nigh done!
Almost upon the western wave
Rested the broad bright sun;
When that strange shape drove suddenly
Betwixt us and the sun.

And straight the sun was flecked with bars,
(Heaven's mother send us grace!)
As if through a dungeon grate he peered
With broad and burning face.

Alas! (thought I, and my heart beat loud)
How fast she nears and nears!
Are those her sails that glance in the sun,
Like restless gossameres?

Are those her ribs through which the sun
Did peer, as through a grate?
And is that woman all her crew?
Is that a Death? and are there two?
Is Death that woman's mate?

Her lips were red, her looks were free,
Her locks were yellow as gold:
Her skin was as white as leprosy,
The nightmare Life-in-Death was she,
Who thicks man's blood with cold.

The naked hulk alongside came,
And the twain were casting dice;
'The game is done! I've won! I've won!'
Quoth she, and whistles thrice.

The sun's rim dips; the stars rush out:
At one stride comes the dark;
With far-heard whisper, o'er the sea,
Off shot the spectre bark.

We listened and looked sideways up!
Fear at my heart, as at a cup,
My lifeblood seemed to sip!
The stars were dim, and thick the night,
The steersman's face by his lamp gleamed white;
From the sails the dews did drip--
Till clomb above the eastern bar
The horned moon, with one bright star
Within the nether tip.

One after one, by the star-dogged moon,
Too quick for groan or sigh,
Each turned his face with ghastly pang,
And cursed me with his eye.

Four times fifty living men,
(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
They dropped down one by one.

Their souls did from their bodies fly--
They fled to bliss or woe!
And every soul, it passed me by,
Like the whizz of my crossbow!"

Part IV

"I fear thee, ancient mariner!
I fear thy skinny hand!
And thou art long, and lank, and brown,
As is the ribbed sea-sand.

I fear thee and thy glittering eye,
And thy skinny hand, so brown."--
"Fear not, fear not, thou wedding-guest!
This body dropped not down.

Alone, alone, all, all alone,
Alone on a wide wide sea!
And never a saint took pity on
My soul in agony.

The many men, so beautiful!
And they all dead did lie:
And a thousand thousand slimy things
Lived on; and so did I.

I looked upon the rotting sea,
And drew my eyes away;
I looked upon the rotting deck,
And there the dead men lay.

I looked to heaven, and tried to pray;
But or ever a prayer had gushed,
A wicked whisper came, and made
My heart as dry as dust.

I closed my lids, and kept them close,
Till the balls like pulses beat;
For the sky and the sea, and the sea and the sky
Lay like a load on my weary eye,
And the dead were at my feet.

The cold sweat melted from their limbs,
Nor rot nor reek did they:
The look with which they looked on me
Had never passed away.

An orphan's curse would drag to hell
A spirit from on high;
But oh! more horrible than that
Is the curse in a dead man's eye!
Seven days, seven nights, I saw that curse,
And yet I could not die.

The moving moon went up the sky,
And nowhere did abide:
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside--

Her beams bemocked the sultry main,
Like April hoar-frost spread;
But where the ship's huge shadow lay,
The charmed water burnt alway
A still and awful red.

Beyond the shadow of the ship,
I watched the water snakes:
They moved in tracks of shining white,
And when they reared, the elfish light
Fell off in hoary flakes.

Within the shadow of the ship
I watched their rich attire:
Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,
They coiled and swam; and every track
Was a flash of golden fire.

O happy living things! No tongue
Their beauty might declare:
A spring of love gushed from my heart,
And I blessed them unaware:
Sure my kind saint took pity on me,
And I blessed them unaware.

The selfsame moment I could pray;
And from my neck so free
The albatross fell off, and sank
Like lead into the sea.

Part V

Oh sleep! it is a gentle thing,
Beloved from pole to pole!
To Mary-Queen the praise be given!
She sent the gentle sleep from heaven,
That slid into my soul.

The silly buckets on the deck,
That had so long remained,
I dreamt that they were filled with dew;
And when I awoke, it rained.

My lips were wet, my throat was cold,
My garments all were dank;
Sure I had drunken in my dreams,
And still my body drank.

I moved, and could not feel my limbs:
I was so light--almost
I thought that I had died in sleep,
And was a blessed ghost.

And soon I heard a roaring wind:
It did not come anear;
But with its sound it shook the sails,
That were so thin and sere.

The upper air bursts into life!
And a hundred fire-flags sheen,
To and fro they were hurried about!
And to and fro, and in and out,
The wan stars danced between.

And the coming wind did roar more loud,
And the sails did sigh like sedge;
And the rain poured down from one black cloud;
The moon was at its edge.

The thick black cloud was cleft, and still
The moon was at its side:
Like waters shot from some high crag,
The lightning fell with never a jag,
A river steep and wide.

The loud wind never reached the ship,
Yet now the ship moved on!
Beneath the lightning and the moon
The dead men gave a groan.

They groaned, they stirred, they all uprose,
Nor spake, nor moved their eyes;
It had been strange, even in a dream,
To have seen those dead men rise.

The helmsman steered, the ship moved on;
Yet never a breeze up-blew;
The mariners all 'gan work the ropes,
Where they were wont to do;
They raised their limbs like lifeless tools--
We were a ghastly crew.

The body of my brother's son
Stood by me, knee to knee:
The body and I pulled at one rope,
But he said nought to me."

"I fear thee, ancient mariner!"
"Be calm, thou wedding-guest!
'Twas not those souls that fled in pain,
Which to their corses came again,
But a troop of spirits blessed.

For when it dawned--they dropped their arms,
And clustered round the mast;
Sweet sounds rose slowly through their mouths,
And from their bodies passed.

Around, around, flew each sweet sound,
Then darted to the sun;
Slowly the sounds came back again,
Now mixed, now one by one.

Sometimes a-dropping from the sky
I heard the skylark sing;
Sometimes all little birds that are,
How they seemed to fill the sea and air
With their sweet jargoning!

And now 'twas like all instruments,
Now like a lonely flute;
And now it is an angel's song,
That makes the heavens be mute.

It ceased; yet still the sails made on
A pleasant noise till noon,
A noise like of a hidden brook
In the leafy month of June,
That to the sleeping woods all night
Singeth a quiet tune.

Till noon we silently sailed on,
Yet never a breeze did breathe:
Slowly and smoothly went the ship,
Moved onward from beneath.

Under the keel nine fathom deep,
From the land of mist and snow,
The spirit slid: and it was he
That made the ship to go.
The sails at noon left off their tune,
And the ship stood still also.

The sun, right up above the mast,
Had fixed her to the ocean:
But in a minute she 'gan stir,
With a short uneasy motion--
Backwards and forwards half her length
With a short uneasy motion.

Then like a pawing horse let go,
She made a sudden bound:
It flung the blood into my head,
And I fell down in a swound.

How long in that same fit I lay,
I have not to declare;
But ere my living life returned,
I heard and in my soul discerned
Two voices in the air.

'Is it he?' quoth one, 'Is this the man?
By him who died on cross,
With his cruel bow he laid full low
The harmless albatross.

The spirit who bideth by himself
In the land of mist and snow,
He loved the bird that loved the man
Who shot him with his bow.'

The other was a softer voice,
As soft as honeydew:
Quoth he, 'The man hath penance done,
And penance more will do.'

Part VI

FIRST VOICE

'But tell me, tell me! speak again,
Thy soft response renewing--
What makes that ship drive on so fast?
What is the ocean doing?'

SECOND VOICE

'Still as a slave before his lord,
The ocean hath no blast;
His great bright eye most silently
Up to the moon is cast--

If he may know which way to go;
For she guides him smooth or grim.
See, brother, see! how graciously
She looketh down on him.'

FIRST VOICE

'But why drives on that ship so fast,
Without or wave or wind?'

SECOND VOICE

'The air is cut away before,
And closes from behind.

Fly, brother, fly! more high, more high!
Or we shall be belated:
For slow and slow that ship will go,
When the mariner's trance is abated.'

I woke, and we were sailing on
As in a gentle weather:
'Twas night, calm night, the moon was high;
The dead men stood together.

All stood together on the deck,
For a charnel-dungeon fitter:
All fixed on me their stony eyes,
That in the moon did glitter.

The pang, the curse, with which they died,
Had never passed away:
I could not draw my eyes from theirs,
Nor turn them up to pray.

And now this spell was snapped: once more
I viewed the ocean green,
And looked far forth, yet little saw
Of what had else been seen--

Like one, that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.

But soon there breathed a wind on me,
Nor sound nor motion made:
Its path was not upon the sea,
In ripple or in shade.

It raised my hair, it fanned my cheek
Like a meadow-gale of spring--
It mingled strangely with my fears,
Yet it felt like a welcoming.

Swiftly, swiftly flew the ship,
Yet she sailed softly too:
Sweetly, sweetly blew the breeze--
On me alone it blew.

O dream of joy! is this indeed
The lighthouse top I see?
Is this the hill? is this the kirk?
Is this mine own country?

We drifted o'er the harbour bar,
And I with sobs did pray--
O let me be awake, my God!
Or let me sleep alway!

The harbour bay was clear as glass,
So smoothly it was strewn!
And on the bay the moonlight lay,
And the shadow of the moon.

The rock shone bright, the kirk no less,
That stands above the rock:
The moonlight steeped in silentness
The steady weathercock.

And the bay was white with silent light,
Till rising from the same,
Full many shapes, that shadows were,
In crimson colours came.

A little distance from the prow
Those crimson shadows were:
I turned my eyes upon the deck--
O Christ! what saw I there!

Each corse lay flat, lifeless and flat,
And, by the holy rood!
A man all light, a seraph man,
On every corse there stood.

This seraph band, each waved his hand:
It was a heavenly sight!
They stood as signals to the land,
Each one a lovely light;

This seraph band, each waved his hand,
No voice did they impart--
No voice; but oh! the silence sank
Like music on my heart.

But soon I heard the dash of oars,
I heard the pilot's cheer;
My head was turned perforce away
And I saw a boat appear.

The pilot and the pilot's boy,
I heard them coming fast:
Dear Lord in heaven! it was a joy
The dead men could not blast.

I saw a third--I heard his voice:
It is the hermit good!
He singeth loud his godly hymns
That he makes in the wood.
He'll shrieve my soul, he'll wash away
The albatross's blood.

Part VII

This hermit good lives in that wood
Which slopes down to the sea.
How loudly his sweet voice he rears!
He loves to talk with mariners
That come from a far country.

He kneels at morn, and noon, and eve--
He hath a cushion plump:
It is the moss that wholly hides
The rotted old oak stump.

The skiff boat neared: I heard them talk,
'Why, this is strange, I trow!
Where are those lights so many and fair,
That signal made but now?'

'Strange, by my faith!' the hermit said--
'And they answered not our cheer!
The planks look warped! and see those sails,
How thin they are and sere!
I never saw aught like to them,
Unless perchance it were

Brown skeletons of leaves that lag
My forest-brook along;
When the ivy tod is heavy with snow,
And the owlet whoops to the wolf below,
That eats the she-wolf's young.'

'Dear Lord! it hath a fiendish look,'
The pilot made reply,
'I am a-feared'--'Push on, push on!'
Said the hermit cheerily.

The boat came closer to the ship,
But I nor spake nor stirred;
The boat came close beneath the ship,
And straight a sound was heard.

Under the water it rumbled on,
Still louder and more dread:
It reached the ship, it split the bay;
The ship went down like lead.

Stunned by that loud and dreadful sound,
Which sky and ocean smote
Like one that hath been seven days drowned
My body lay afloat;
But swift as dreams, myself I found
Within the pilot's boat.

Upon the whirl, where sank the ship,
The boat spun round and round;
And all was still, save that the hill
Was telling of the sound.

I moved my lips--the pilot shrieked
And fell down in a fit;
The holy hermit raised his eyes,
And prayed where he did sit.

I took the oars: the pilot's boy,
Who now doth crazy go,
Laughed loud and long, and all the while
His eyes went to and fro.
'Ha! ha!' quoth he, 'full plain I see,
The devil knows how to row.'

And now, all in my own country,
I stood on the firm land!
The hermit stepped forth from the boat,
And scarcely he could stand.

'Oh shrieve me, shrieve me, holy man!'
The hermit crossed his brow.
'Say quick,' quoth he, 'I bid thee say--
What manner of man art thou?'

Forthwith this frame of mine was wrenched
With a woeful agony,
Which forced me to begin my tale;
And then it left me free.

Since then, at an uncertain hour,
That agony returns:
And till my ghastly tale is told,
This heart within me burns.

I pass, like night, from land to land;
I have strange power of speech;
The moment that his face I see,
I know the man that must hear me:
To him my tale I teach.

What loud uproar bursts from that door!
The wedding-guests are there:
But in the garden-bower the bride
And bridemaids singing are:
And hark the little vesper bell,
Which biddeth me to prayer!

O wedding-guest! This soul hath been
Alone on a wide wide sea:
So lonely 'twas, that God himself
Scarce seemed there to be.

Oh sweeter than the marriage feast,
'Tis sweeter far to me,
To walk together to the kirk
With a goodly company!--

To walk together to the kirk,
And all together pray,
While each to his great Father bends,
Old men, and babes, and loving friends
And youths and maidens gay!

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou wedding-guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all."

The mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,
Is gone: and now the wedding-guest
Turned from the bridegroom's door.

He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.
