Oh Captain! My Captain
Musical Interpretation!
Vessel
Exulting/Exult
Sought
By: Walt Whitman
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!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the
bugle

trills
,
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!
The arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.
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;

Exult
O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with
mournful
tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
