Babette Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 4

Sponsored Links

My Lady is dancing so lightly,

The belle of the Embassy Ball;

I lied as I kissed her politely,

And hurried away from it all.

I'm taxiing up to Montmartre,

With never a pang of regret,

To toy for awhile with the garter

Of her whom I know as Babette.

My Lady's an exquisite creature,

As rare as a queen on a throne;

She's faultless in form and in feature,

But oh, she      is cold as a stone.

And so from her presence I hurry,

Her iciness quick to forget

In sensuous joy as I bury

My face in the breast of Babette.

She's only a flower of the pavement;

With Paris and Spring in her eyes;

Yet I who foresaw what the grave meant

Of passion behold with surprise,

When she greets me as gay as a linnet,

Afar from life's fever and fret

I'm twenty years younger the minute

I enter the room of Babette.

The poor little supper she offers

Is more than a banquet to me;

A different bif-tik she proffers,

Pommes frit and a morsel of Brie;

We finish with coffee and kisses,

Then sit on the sofa and pet . . .

At the Embassy Mumm never misses,

But pinard's my drink with Babette.

Somehow and somewhere to my thinking,

There's a bit of apache in us all;

In bistros I'd rather be drinking,

Than dance at the Embassy Ball.

How often I feel I would barter

My place in the social set,

To roam in a moonlit Montmartre,

Alone with my little Babette.

I'm no longer young and I'm greying;

I'm tailored, top-hatted, kid-gloved,

And though in dark ways i be straying,

It's heaven to love and beloved;

The passion of youth to re-capture. . . .

My Lady's perfection and yet

When I kiss her I think of the rapture

I find in the charms of Babette -

Entwined in the arms of Babettte.
