The Death Of A Captain


The violent rage of winds they blow
The tides are rising o'er and o'er
The eager sea is about a drinking
Captain! Captain! your ship is sinking

And the captain kept on thinking

Captain! Captain! your soul's a wreck
You cannot stand out on the deck
And not here the squeaking floor
Of this wretched ship i know

And the captain kept on thinking

Captain! let me save your ship
Before it shelters in the deep
Captain! Captain! if you will
Let me take the wheel

And the captain kept on thinking

Captain! you must hear me say
That you may do what e, er you may
The eager sea is about a drinking
Captain! Captain! your ship is sinking

And the captain kept on thinking.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
