by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)
(an excerpt from ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’)
Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.
He prayeth best who loveth best
All things, both great and small:
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.
