Here, Sailor

Rating: 2.8

WHAT ship, puzzled at sea, cons for the true reckoning?
Or, coming in, to avoid the bars, and follow the channel, a perfect
pilot needs?
Here, sailor! Here, ship! take aboard the most perfect pilot,
Whom, in a little boat, putting off, and rowing, I, hailing you,
offer.

I think that this poem is about Lincoln just as O captain My captain was. In this one Whitman is campaining Lincoln for presidency offering the nation a perfect pilot as it heads for troubled times. Also Whitman presents Lincoln as a very humble leader with the discription of him putting off and rowing.
