Lincoln the captain of America

Whitman ,the mouthpiece of American pulse and temperament
sings the dirge of America at the brutal murder of the great statesman
,-Abraham Lincoln .
The poem is on hero-worship and the irrecoverable loss of the national
Whitman's memorial functions the en-kindling of the voice of reverence to
one who lived for others .
The captain in his life stationed himself to a universal-captain .
The poem proves to be a flag of American nationality .
