O Lovely Lie Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 2

Sponsored Links

I told a truth, a tragic truth

          That tore the sullen sky;

A million shuddered at my sooth

          And anarchist was I.

Red righteousness was in my word

          To winnow evil chaff;

Yet while I swung crusading sword

          I heard the devil laugh.

I framed a lie, a rainbow lie

          To glorify a thought;

And none was so surprised as I

          When fast as fire it caught.

Like honey people lapped my lie

          And peddled it abroad,

Till in a lift of sunny sky

          I saw the smile of God.

If falsehood may be best, I thought,

          To hell with verity;

Dark truth may be a cancer spot

          'Twere better not to see.

Aye, let a lie be big and bold

          Yet ripe with hope and ruth,

Beshrew me! but its heart may hold

          More virtue than the truth.
