Full Fathom Five Thy Father Lies
William Shakespeare

Full Fathom Five thy Father lies
(Ariels's song from The Tempest)


Full fathom five thy Father lies, 
Of his bones are Corrall made: 
Those are pearles that were his eies, 
Nothing of him that doth fade, 
But doth suffer a Sea-change 
Into something rich & strange 
Sea-Nymphs hourly ring his knell. 
Harke now I heare them, ding-dong, bell.
