Here, Sailor


WHAT ship, puzzled at sea, cons for the true reckoning?
Or, coming in, to avoid the bars, and follow the channel, a perfect
pilot needs?
Here, sailor! Here, ship! take aboard the most perfect pilot,
Whom, in a little boat, putting off, and rowing, I, hailing you,
offer.

I think that this poem is about Lincoln just as O captain My captain was. In this one Whitman is campaining Lincoln for presidency offering the nation a perfect pilot as it heads for troubled times. Also Whitman presents Lincoln as a very humble leader with the discription of him putting off and rowing.
I think that this poem is talking about abraham lincoln. I think WALT WHITMAN expressing very good ideas about Abraham Lincoln. He view Abraham lincoln as The perfEct CaPTain to lead america into civil war.
i think this poem is well written i think it is about a sailor speaking to the captain which is Lincoln
