The Tempest

Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of his that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:

Burden. Ding-dong
Hark! now I hear them – ding-dong, bell.

William Shakespeare, The Tempest (1611), Act I, Scene ii.

Sung by Ariel (while invisible) to Prince Ferdinand.
