poetry form week 30, Fable or Aesop

classical example of Fable or Aesop written by S. T. Coleridge

First Voice

“But tell me, tell me! speak again,
Thy soft response renewing —
What makes that ship drive on so fast?
What is the ocean doing?”

Second Voice

“Still as a slave before his lord,
The ocean hath no blast…
Up to the moon is cast —…
See! see! (I cried) she tacks no more…
“Without a breeze, without a tide,
She steadies with upright keel!”
