O Captain my Captain paraphrase

O Captain my Captain!
Victorious and daring
You’re back from your odyssey.
A thousand bleeding drops
Run down your face

O Captain my Captain!
Hear the bells ring,
Hear the multitude roar.
Please rise up from the deck
Where you lie

Why don’t you answer, o Captain?
Is it that you can’t hear me?
The trip is done.
The bells are tolling now
While my captain lies
