From Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:

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.
