    Though the whole wind

    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:
    Ding-dong.
    Hark! Now I hear them—ding-dong bell.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
