Oh Captain My Captain

Sign in to follow this  


I'm setting aside this entry to say goodbye to one of BZPower's greatest roleplayers and a source of inspiration to me in that field. I'm definitely not one of the ones who knew him very well, that honor goes to others. I don't have much to say either, but I still feel like I can sincerely say farewell to a legend.


Goodbye Captain and may you find happiness in the path you have chosen.

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,

The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won,

The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,

While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;

But O heart! heart! heart!

O the bleeding drops of red,

Where on the deck my Captain lies,

Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;

Rise up--for you the flag is flung--for you the bugle trills,

For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths--for you the shores a-crowding,

For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;

Here Captain! dear father!

This arm beneath your head!

It is some dream that on the deck,

You've fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,

My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,

The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,

From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;

Exult O shores, and ring O bells!

But I with mournful tread,

Walk the deck my Captain lies,

Fallen cold and dead.

This title reminded me (for some reason) of "The Erlking". :P


Other than that, I'm sad to see another great BZPer go. I never really met the guy, but when I look back at his RPGs, they're very impressive and I wish I could've been there to play them.
