Full Fathom Five FULL FATHOM FIVE (Shakespeare) 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. Text by William Shakespeare (1564-1616), from The Tempest, Act I, scene ii. JIB oct99
