Dunce Analysis

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

Sponsored Links

At school I never gained a prize,

Proving myself the model ass;

Yet how I watched the wistful eyes,

And cheered my mates who topped the class.

No envy in my heart I found,

Yet bone was worthier to own

Those precious books in vellum bound,

Than I, a dreamer and a drone.

No prize at school I ever gained

(Shirking my studies, I suppose):

Yes, I remember being caned

For lack of love of Latin prose.

For algebra I won no praise,

In grammar I was far from bright:

Yet, oh, how Poetry would raise

In me a rapture of delight!

I never gained a prize at school;

The dullard's cap adorned my head;

My masters wrote me down a fool,

And yet - I'm sorry they are dead.

I'd like to go to them and say:

"Yours is indeed a tricky trade.

My honoured classmates, where are they?

Yet I, the dunce, brave books have made."

Oh, I am old and worn and grey,

And maybe have not long to live;

Yet 'tis my hope at some Prize Day

At my old school the Head will give

A tome or two of mine to crown

Some pupil's well-deserved success -

Proving a scapegrace and a clown

May win at last to worthiness.
