Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Sea-ward, white gleaming thro' the busy scud (fragment)

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets.






Sea-ward, white gleaming thro' the busy scud
  With arching Wings, the sea-mew o'er my head
  Posts on, as bent on speed, now passaging
  Edges the stiffer Breeze, now, yielding, drifts,
  Now floats upon the air, and sends from far
  A wildly-wailing Note.
