The Poet Prayer


Whitman, Thoreau
The era of freedom and imagination
Only dead poets leave lasting impressions
Inspiring the new found passionate poets

Oh captain my captain
Teach me to live free
And trust that my ideas are unique and my own
Though some may beleive them to be strange
Pursue my dreams and be a free thinker

Oh captain My Captain God of poetry
Interpret my words how you wish
And let my words flow gentle yet powerful as rivers can be
Through the impressionable, flexible minds of my peers

Oh captain my captain
Help them see your ideas are wild
But can change everything
Teach them to live by their rules
suck all the marrow out of life

Oh captain my captain
Spread the beautiful word
Free spirits roam about unique and invariably transforming
New interpretations, ideas and passion
