Songs from Plays: A Sea Dirge (from The Tempest)
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
FULL fathom five thy father lies;
    Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
    Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change        5
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
                        Ding-dong.
Hark! now I hear them,—Ding-dong, bell.
