Explain why coleridge involved a water snake in the poem's climax

The water snakes are used in the most paradoxical way. They would normally be thought of as scary, creepy, and the last thing one wants to see since they might be deadly. Instead, he sees the beauty of the natural creatures and sees their reflections of their scales and sees them in the most beautiful ways. Coleridge wanted mank to see nature as a beautiful part of the world and to appreciate the beauty around us.
