And they all dead did lie
6 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches; with border: 7 1/2 x 5 1/16 inches
From Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:
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.
