   English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
107. A Sea Dirge
 
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:
  Hark! now I hear them,—
      Ding, dong, bell.
