The Rime of the Ancient Mariner


The images are from

The mariner up on the mast in a storm. One of the wood-engraved illustrations by Gustave Doré of the poem.

I actually wanted to write a love story, The Love Story, about my parents but; sometimes you are obsessed with something or some thema. that is what was happening to me today, I was suddenly attacked by one of the Iron Maiden’s songs; Rime Of The Ancient Mariner. it might be because we’re dissatisfied by the real-time in which we live (as I surely feel to be) and searching in the old time when we were young and the problems are easier to be solved or even be ignored.

I love something creepy just helps me to keep awakened, 😀 I does not mean it to be a sadistic or masochistic thing to search an excitement to be wake up! it is only the old history or story or fairy tales, which I love to hear, to know, and to keep them in my heart and mind for having the feeling as I was also among him/her or them.

Engraving by Gustave Doré for an 1876 edition of the poem. “The Albatross” depicts 17 sailors on the deck of a wooden ship facing an albatross. Icicles hang from the rigging.

Anyway, actually, a friend of mine/ours; Stefy <e-Tinkerbell> made me think about the “Rime of our life” as she made as a title on one of her posts; The Rime of our Life

Therefore, I love the old stories; fictions or not, no matter I love them, and I love when one lets the imagination flies freely, like Shakespeare, or Dickens, or Dostoevsky or Jules Verne or Arthur Conan Doyle.

To put it bluntly, I’m not here on this Earth to search for the matters which I’d get in my hands, I want just to gather all spirituals keeping in my mind (soul) and when I have to go, I’ll take all with me 😉

Anyway, I share now the musical version of the old tells, by a band which really is one one the best musical performance in the music history, the song has been written by Steven harris, the bassman and I tell you; I had also tried to write a song alone and wrote every little thing on every instrument, it isn’t easy. also; hats off!

So, if you like, let’s get back to the ’80s in which the music was music and the musicians were in the real form.
