Tranquilism Analysis

Author: Poetry of Robert Service Type: Poetry Views: 137

Rhymes of a RoughneckI call myself a Tranquilist;

With deep detachment I exist,From friction free;

While others court the gilded throng

And worship Women, Wine and Song,I scorn the three.

For I have reached the sober age

When I prefer to turn a pageBeside the fire,

And from the busy mart of men

To meditative book and penWith grace retire.If you are craving peace of mind,

In Tranquilism you will findPhilosophy;

Serenely fold your hands and wait

Be cloistered calm whatever fateThe Gods decree.

And though the world with rage be rent,

Hold it remote and claim contentWith quiet heart;

You can't do much to better it,

But your good-will may help a bit,Ere you depart.So let us who are old and sere

To din of battle shut the ear,And trumpet vain;

And though in no monastic mood

Accept the balm of solitudeAnd grace regain.

Let us be Tranquilists and try

In placid places to applyLife's wisdom won;

In Nature's bounty we may bless

The Gods and wait with thankfulnessOur setting sun.
