NUMBER:894
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:’T is strange that death should sing.
I am the cygnet to this pale faint swan,
Who chants a doleful hymn to his own death, 1
And from the organ-pipe of frailty sings
His soul and body to their lasting rest.
ATTRIBUTION:King John. Act v. Sc. 7.  [text]
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection.
