SOLIPSIST: Something Rich and Strange

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:
  Hark! now I hear them -- Ding-dong, bell.

-- Ariel's Song, The Tempest
