The ice was a pretty ominous sign. Coleridge describes it as encircling them, almost enveloping them,
"The ice was here, the ice was there,
The ice was all around:
It cracked and growled, and roared and howled,
Like noises in a swound!"
It almost seems like a frozen sea-serpand howling and threatening to crush their little ship.
