A Song Of Suicide Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 6

Sponsored Links

Deeming that I were better dead,

"How shall I kill myself?" I said.

Thus mooning by the river Seine

I sought extinction without pain,

When on a bridge I saw a flash

Of lingerie and heard a splash . . .

So as I am a swimmer stout

I plunged and pulled the poor wretch out.

The female that I saved? Ah yes,

To yield the Morgue of one corpse the less,

Apart from all heroic action,

Gave me a moral satisfaction.

was she an old and withered hag,

Too tired of life to long to lag?

Ah no, she was so young and fair

I fell in love with her right there.

And when she took me to her attic

Her gratitude was most emphatic.

A sweet and simple girl she proved,

Distraught because the man she loved

In battle his life-blood had shed . . .

So I, too, told her of my dead,

The girl who in a garret grey

Had coughed and coughed her life away.

Thus as we sought our griefs to smother,

With kisses we consoled each other . . .

And there's the ending of my story;

It wasn't grim, it wasn't gory.

For comforted were hearts forlorn,

And from black sorrow joy was born:

So may our dead dears be forgiving,

And bless the rapture of the living.
