"Full Fathom Five" by Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Full Fathom Five

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
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Hark! now I hear them—Ding-dong, bell.

Note: This short poem is the second section of Ariel's song, and part of Shakespeare's "The Tempest."
