The Sinking of the Lisbon Maru

So, I invite your highness and your train
To my poor cell, where you shall take your rest
For this one night, which part of it I’ll waste
With such discourse as I not doubt shall make it
Go quick away: the story of my life,
And the particular accidents gone by

The Tempest, Act 5, Scene 1

So, I invite your highness and your train

To my poor cell, where you shall take your rest

For this one night, which part of it I’ll waste

With such discourse as I not doubt shall make it

Go quick away: the story of my life,

And the particular accidents gone by

The Tempest, Act 5, Scene 1
