Ariel's Song is a song from William Shakespeare's The Tempest

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 them—Ding-dong, bell.
