Section 1

Question Answer
Line 1O Captain my Captain our fearful trip is done,
Line 2The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won,
Line 3The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
Line 4While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring,
Line 5But O heart! heart! heart!
Line 6O the bleeding drops of red,
Line 7Where on the deck my captain lies,
Line 8Fallen cold and dead.

Section 2

Question Answer
Line 1O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Line 2Rise up--for you the flag is flung--for you the bugle trills,
Line 3For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths--for you the shores a-crowding,
Line 4For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Line 5Hear Captain! dear father!
Line 6The arm beneath your head!
Line 7It is some dream that on the deck,
Line 8You've fallen cold and dead.

Section 3

Question Answer
Line 1My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
Line 2My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
Line 3The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
Line 4From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Line 5Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
Line 6But I with mournful tread,
Line 7Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Line 8Fallen cold and dead.
