This poem has a rhyme scheme and uses imagery, for example, his lips  are
pale and still
. I think this poem was written in respect to someone. He sounds
very pleased and hopeful. He mentions the death of his captain but I don't
exactly know what that's supposed to mean. However, the poem doesn't sound so
depressing because of the way he describes it. It's weird but the poet sounds
excited and cheerful when he's not supposed to. I think the poet has rather gone
mad because he's too upset. I also feel like the mood of the poem did not
change throughout the entire poem. The way the poet reassures the dead
captain made me feel confused. Because the poet is glad that their fearful trip
is over but it seems like he's really shocked that his captain's dead. It's kind
of like a mix of feelings/emotions which I find it interesting.
