 193. O Captain! My Captain!

 

1

 O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done;           

The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won;             

The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,            

While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:               

    But O heart! heart! heart!               5

      O the bleeding drops of red,              

        Where on the deck my Captain lies,             

          Fallen cold and dead.         

 2

 O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;         

Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills;           10

For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding;        

For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;

    Here Captain! dear father!    

      This arm beneath your head;             

        It is some dream that on the deck,   15

          You’ve fallen cold and dead.          

 3

 My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;

My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;         

The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;          

From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;       20

    Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!       

      But I, with mournful tread,  

        Walk the deck my Captain lies,        

          Fallen cold and dead.
