My Captain

The Boy Poet

my Captain

My Captain My Captain they said
As dead poets became undead
The man who first inspired my pen
To doodle verse just now and then
Now I write to honour that man
Who made me believe that I can
Shazbot! The legend is no more
All the laughter has gone before.
Just to listen to the man on stage
When humour came swiftly of age.
Another sonnet yes, it’s true
Not the first I’ve written to you
O Captain who showed me the way
My heart aches with sadness today
