The albatross came at a time when the ship and the mariners were stuck among the ice-bergs. The sweet bird came as a Christian soul. It brought a favourable south wind with it. The ship cleared through the ice-bergs. It was a symbol of life and warmth in a region where there were no signs of men or animals. But after the auspicious bird was killed by a senseless rush of blood that overpowered the old Mariner, things changed. Things suddenly headed towards stagnation and decay on a silent sea. No ‘sweet’ bird followed the ship now.
