"As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean" One of the best lines of the poem.
Iron Maiden released a great song about the Ancient Mariner (about 13 minutes long) great story and many quotes from Coleridge in the lyrics.

| "Hunnewell knew who his murderer was - the man who gave the order for his death. He tried to quote from 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.' It was all there, wasn't it?" You quoted it yourself: 'Why look'st thou so? With my crossbow I shot the Albatross.' Your trademark, Oskar, the red albatross. That's what Hunnewell meant. "For all averr'd I had kill'd the bird That made the breeze to blow.' You killed the man who helped probe the sea floor." Pitt was feeling cocky now; the warmth from the brandy was spreading comfortably through his body. "I can't match your memory for quoting verse verbatim, but if my memory serves me correctly, the Ancient Mariner and his ship of ghosts were met by a hermit near the end - another tie-in. "Yes, it was all in the verse. Hunnewell pointed the finger of guilt with his dying breath and you, Oskar, stood up and unwittingly pleaded guilty."

|Pitt began to feel like the Ancient Mariner on a ship of ghosts. The only thing missing was an albatross around his neck. Shock Wave (8)|

Sharp eye - I just finished reading Lost City!
Austin stared off at the anchored NUMA boat, thinking of Coleridge's description of a painted ship on a painted sea, and tried to put events in order. Lost City (12)

With that many names, its a wonder he didn't have an identity crisis.
Wonder how many times he got them mixed up?
