Dead Poets and All That

Inspired by and written for Weekend Writing Prompt – Thank you, Sammi

Dead Poets and All That
Form: Free Verse

He stood at the door
and their eyes stared tears
one spoke
“O Captain! My Captain”
the thalassic tone
of a seafarer’s poem thus became
a tribute to a literary master
and to me a poet
a dear memory
of a comic genius, Robin
and I hear “Good Morning Vietnam”

Word Count: 50
