William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

              Full fathom five thy father lies...

                   (From Act I, Scene 2 of "The Tempest", 1611)

                   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.

                   Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872–1958), 1951
