    Did Alcott cite Coleridge when this poem was published? These lines are from Coleridge's' The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, He prayeth best who loveth best, All things both great and small, For the dear God who loveth us, He made and loveth all. Alcott was born in 1832 and died in 1888. Coleridge was born in 1772 and died in 8134. (Report) Reply
