Listen to the audio version of this poem.

My Captain! My Captain! My Captain!
Hoist this pink flag! Sail this full-rigged vessel
point your compass to my true south
prop me up on the deck and spread me wide.

Set sail; set your propeller throttling
part the waves, save the swell for us to ride
this cruise I’ll revel in with you
OMG, what a voyage!

How the motion, the appeasing waves
rock back n’ forth, from relish to ravish;
let me gallop on your funnel,
sail on my saddle and tame me.

My Captain! My Captain, my Captain!
in your cabin, what a skilled sailor you’re
with a big rudder, steering me to Bermuda
Oh, your thrusters are pure bliss.
