the prize we sought is won

oh captain my captain, by walt whitman – i first learned the poem in 2nd grade english class, 43 years or so ago. my english teacher, miss patao, asked me to join the school declamation contest after she heard me recite a few verses. i won gold.

i am now 50 years old and to this day, i can recite every line.

well, almost every line 🙂
