“My gentle Puck, come hither. Thou rememberest
Since once I sat upon a promontory
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath
That the rude sea grew civil at her song.”
~ William Shakspeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream Act II, Scene I

Painting: John William Waterhouse – Mermaid, 1900
