The Record Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 3

Sponsored Links

Fearing that she might go one day

With some fine fellow of her choice,

I called her from her childish play,

And made a record of her voice.

And now that she is truly gone,

I hear it sweet and crystal clear

From out my wheezy gramophone:

            "I love you, Daddy dear."

Indeed it's true she went away,

But Oh she went all, all alone;

Into the dark she went for aye,

Poor little mite! ere girlhood grown.

Ah that I could with her have gone!

But this is all I have to show -

A ghost voice on a gramophone:

            "Dear Dad, I love you so."

The saddest part of loss 'tis said,

Is that time tempers our regret;

But that is treason to the dead -

I'll not forget, I'll not forget.

Sole souvenir of golden years,

'Twas best to break this disc in two,

And spare myself a spate of tears . . .

            But this I cannot do.

So I will play it every day,

And it will seem that she is near,

And once again I'll hear her say:

I love you so, Oh Daddy dear."

And then her kiss - a stab of woe.

The record ends . . . I breathe a plea:

"Oh God, speed me to where I know

            Wee lass, you wait for me."
