Famous quotes containing the word deck:

    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.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The almost universal bareness and smoothness of the landscape were as agreeable as novel, making it so much more like the deck of a vessel.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And every sea-god pays a gem,
    Yearly out of his watery cell,
    To deck great Neptune’s diadem.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)
