William Shakespeare. 1564–1616
131. Fairy Land
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!  10
