Bill's Prayer Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 6

I never thought that Bill could say

           A proper prayer;

'Twas more in his hard-bitten way

           To cuss and swear;

Yet came the night when Baby Ted

           Was bitter ill,

I tip-toed to his tiny bed,

           And there was Bill.


Aye, down upon his bended knees

           I heard him cry:

"O God, don't take my kiddy, please!

           Don't let him die!"

Then softly so he would not see,

           I shrank away:

He would have been so shamed for me

           To see him pray.

Men-folk are queer: Bill acts up tough,

           Yet how it's odd,

When things are looking downright rough

           He tunes to God.

"The Parson and the Priest be darned!"

           I've heard him say:

Yet when his baby is concerned

           He's quick to pray.

Maybe it's gentle parent-hood

           That gives us grace,

And in its sacrificial mood

           Uplifts the race.

Of sentiment, all self above,

           That goodness sums

I think the saving best is Love

           For little ones.
