Today’s poetry quote isn’t a poem per se, but rather an excerpt from The Tempest by William Shakespeare which I found particularly memorable after hearing it quoted in an undersea documentary film. Enjoy…
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that does 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.
— The Tempest, William Shakespeare
