“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;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.”

-  Oberon, Act II, Scene I of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”
