Curse is lifted after mariner blesses with the snakes
Answers 1Add Yours
As soon as the mariner blesses the snakes he regains his ability to pray. Coupled with this, the albatross is removed from around his neck-
And I blessed them unaware.
The self same moment I could pray;
And from my neck so free
The Albatross fell off, and sank
Like lead into the sea.
