The World's All Right Analysis



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

Sponsored Links



Be honest, kindly, simple, true;

Seek good in all, scorn but pretence;

Whatever sorrow come to you,

Believe in Life's Beneficence!




The World's all right; serene I sit,

And cease to puzzle over it.

There's much that's mighty strange, no doubt;

But Nature knows what she's about;

And in a million years or so

We'll know more than to-day we know.

Old Evolution's under way --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



Could things be other than they are?

All's in its place, from mote to star.

The thistledown that flits and flies

Could drift no hair-breadth otherwise.

What is, must be; with rhythmic laws

All Nature chimes, Effect and Cause.

The sand-grain and the sun obey --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



Just try to get the Cosmic touch,

The sense that "you" don't matter much.

A million stars are in the sky;

A million planets plunge and die;

A million million men are sped;

A million million wait ahead.

Each plays his part and has his day --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



Just try to get the Chemic view:

A million million lives made "you".

In lives a million you will be

Immortal down Eternity;

Immortal on this earth to range,

With never death, but ever change.

You always were, and will be aye --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



Be glad! And do not blindly grope

For Truth that lies beyond our scope:

A sober plot informeth all

Of Life's uproarious carnival.

Your day is such a little one,

A gnat that lives from sun to sun;

Yet gnat and you have parts to play --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



And though it's written from the start,

Just act your best your little part.

Just be as happy as you can,

And serve your kind, and die -- a man.

Just live the good that in you lies,

And seek no guerdon of the skies;

Just make your Heaven here, to-day --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



Remember! in Creation's swing

The Race and not the man's the thing.

There's battle, murder, sudden death,

And pestilence, with poisoned breath.

Yet quick forgotten are such woes;

On, on the stream of Being flows.

Truth, Beauty, Love uphold their sway --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.



The World's all right; serene I sit,

And joy that I am part of it;

And put my trust in Nature's plan,

And try to aid her all I can;

Content to pass, if in my place

I've served the uplift of the Race.

Truth! Beauty! Love! O Radiant Day --

     What ho! the World's all right, I say.
