October Poem--Shakespeare--Full Fathom Five

From my favorite Shakespeare play

from The Tempest
Ariel's Song
William Shakespeare

Come unto these yellow sands,
And then take hands:
Curtsied when you have, and kiss'd
The wild waves whist,
Foot it featly here and there;
And, sweet sprites, the burthen bear.
Hark, hark!
The watch-dogs bark.
Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
Cry, Cock-a-diddle-dow.

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 themóDing-dong, bell.

Why am I not surprised that we have the same favorite Shakespeare play?

St. Blog's ever brings to mind:

Oh Wonder! How many goodly people there are here;
How glorious mankind is. Oh Brave New World -- that hath such creatures in it.
