Spartan Mother Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links



My mother loved her horses and

          Her hounds of pedigree;

She did not kiss the baby hand

          I held to her in glee.

Of course I had a sweet nou-nou

          Who tended me with care,

And mother reined her nag to view

          Me with a critic air.



So I went to a famous school,

          But holidays were short;

My mother thought me just a fool,

          Unfit for games and sport.

For I was fond of books and art,

          And hated hound and steed:

Said Mother, 'Boy, you break my heart!

          You are not of our breed.'



Then came the War. The Mater said:

          'Thank God, a son I give

To King and Country,'--well, I'm dead

          Who would have loved to live.

'For England's sake,' said she, 'he died.

          For that my boy I bore.'

And now she talks of me with pride.

          A hero of the War.



Mother, I think that you are glad

          I ended up that way.

Your horses and your dogs you had,

          And still you have today.

Your only child you say you gave

          Your Country to defend . . .

Dear Mother, from a hero's grave

          I--curse you in the end.
