Humility Analysis

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

Sponsored Links

I met upon a narrow way,

Dead weary from his toil,

A fellow warped and gnarled and grey,

Who reeked of sweat and soil.

His rags were readyful to rot,

His eyes were dreary dim;

Yet . . . yet I had the humble thought

To raise my hat to him.

For thinks I: It's the likes of him

That makes the likes of me;

With horny hand and lagging limb

He slaves to keep me free;

That I may have a golden time,

And praise the Lord on high,

Life grinds into the bloody grime

A better man than I.

Yet if in sheer humility

I yield this yokel place,

Will he not think it mockery

And spit into my face,

Saying: "How can you care a damn,

As now my way you bar,

When it's because of what I am,

You, Sir, are what you are?"

But no, he did not speak like that,

Nor homage did I pay;

I did not lift my bowler hat

To greet his common clay;

Instead, he made me feel an ass,

As most respectfully

He stepped aside to let me pass,

And raised his cap to ME.
