Full Fathom Five Thy Father Lies
a poem by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare William - Poem

 

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.
