A Verseman's Apology Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 1

Sponsored Links

Alas! I am only a rhymer,

I don't know the meaning of Art;

But I learned in my little school primer

To love Eugene Field and Bret Harte.

I hailed Hoosier Ryley with pleasure,

To John Hay I took off my hat;

These fellows were right to my measure,

And I've never gone higher than that.

The Classics! Well, most of them bore me,

The Moderns I don't understand;

But I keep Burns, my kinsman before me,

And Kipling, my friend, is at hand.

They taught me my trade as I know it,

Yet though at their feet I have sat,

For God-sake don't call me a poet,

For I've never been guilty of that.

A rhyme-rustler, rugged and shameless,

A Bab Balladeer on the loose;

Of saccarine sonnets I'm blameless,

My  model has been - Mother Goose.

And I fancy my grave-digger griping

As he gives my last lodging a pat:

"This guy wrote McGrew;

'Twas the best he could do" . . .

So I'll go to my maker with that.
