The Old Armchair Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 0

Sponsored Links

In all the pubs from Troon to Ayr

Grandfather's father would repair

With Bobby Burns, a drouthy pair,

                                The glass to clink;

And oftenwhiles, when not too "fou,"

They'd roar a bawdy stave or two,

From midnight muk to morning dew,

                                And drink and drink.

And Grandfather, with eye aglow

And proper pride, would often show

An old armchair where long ago

                                The Bard would sit;

Reciting there with pawky glee

"The Lass that Made the Bed for Me;"

Or whiles a rhyme about the flea

                            That ne'er was writ.

Then I would seek the Poet's chair

And plant my kilted buttocks there,

And read with joy the Bard of Ayr

                                In my own tongue;

The Diel, the Daisy and the Louse

The Hare, the Haggis and the Mouse,

(What fornication and carouse!)

                                When I was young.

Though Kipling, Hardy, Stevenson

Have each my admiration won,

Today, my rhyme-race almost run,

                                My fancy turns

To him who did Pegasus prod

For me, Bard of my native sod,

The sinner best-loved of God -

                            Rare Robbie Burns.
