Section 1

Question Answer
A1O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
A2The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won,
A3The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
A4While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring,
A5But O heart! heart! heart!
A6O the bleeding drops of red,
A7Where on the deck my captain lies,
A8Fallen cold and dead.

Section 2

Question Answer
B1O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
B2Rise up--for you the flag is flung--for you the bugle trills,
B3For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths--for you the shores a-crowding,
B4For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
B5Hear Captain! dear father!
B6The arm beneath your head!
B7It is some dream that on the deck,
B8You've fallen cold and dead.

Section 3

Question Answer
C1My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
C2My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
C3The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
C4From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
C5Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
C6But I with mournful tread,
C7Walk the deck my Captain lies,
C8Fallen cold and dead.
