Robert William Service Poems

  • Prelude: Ballads Of A Bohemian
    Alas! upon some starry height,
    The Gods of Excellence to please,
    This hand of mine will never smite
    The Harp of High Serenities. ...
  • L'envoi - Ballads Of A Bohemian
    We've finished up the filthy war;
    We've won what we were fighting for . . .
    (Or have we? I don't know).
    But anyway I have my wish: ...
  • The Bright Side
    Oh, one gets used to everything!
    I hum a merry song,
    And up the street and round the square
    I wheel my chair along; ...
  • L'envoi (songs Of A Sourdough)
    You who have lived in the Land,
    You who have trusted the trail;
    You who are strong to withstand,
    You who are swift to assail; ...
  • Rhymes Of A Rolling Stone - Prelude
    I sing no idle songs of dalliance days,
    No dreams Elysian inspire my rhyming;
    I have no Celia to enchant my lays,
    No pipes of Pan have set my heart to chiming. ...

William Blake Poem
The Human Abstract
 by William Blake

Pity would be no more,
If we did not make somebody Poor;
