Lines illustrated from Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The rock shone bright, the kirk no less
     That stands above the rock:
The moonlight steeped in silentness
     The steady weathercock.

And the bay was white with silent light,
     Till rising from the same,
Full many shapes, that shadows were,
     In crimson colours came.
