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.

    Volle fünf Lügen deines Vaters; aus seinen Knochen sind Korallen gemacht; Das sind Perlen, die seine Augen waren: Nichts von dem, der verblasst, sondern eine grundlegende Veränderung in etwas Reiches und Seltsames erleidet.

    de pleno corazón cinco tu padre miente; de sus huesos están hechos de coral; esas son las perlas que fueron sus ojos: nada de él que se desvanece pero sufre un cambio de mar en algo rico y extraño.

    đầy đủ hiểu năm cha bạn nói dối; xương của ông là san hô; đó là những viên ngọc trai là đôi mắt của anh ta: không có gì trong anh ta tàn lụi nhưng lại bị biển đổi thành một thứ gì đó phong phú và kỳ lạ.
