The poem I'm looking for is rather old, it's about a wedding party that boards a ship and goes to sea. When at sea the groom or the mariner shoots an albortrose bird down
Thinking he was cool but ended up putting a curse on the whole wedding party at sea. Can anyone please tell me the name of the poem and who may have wrote it.

    You are looking for Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the story line not quite as you outline it, but close. You can find it here:
