"....The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast,
And southward aye we fled.

And now there came both mist and snow,
And it grew wondrous cold:
And ice, masthigh, came floating by,
As green as emerald.

The ice was all around:
It cracked and growled, and roared and howled,
Like noises in a swound ...."
