Robert Service The Poet

He gave to the World Sam McGee and Dan McGrew
Robert Service the poet his equals are few
He did tell some wonderful stories in rhyme
And his legend lives on through the decades of time

The Poet Laureate of the Arctic when men mined for gold
Of human heart-ache and elation stories in rhyme by him told
And later on in Paris he added to his fame
In rhyme's glory days his was a legendary name

Of Robert Service true greatness cannot be denied
From Preston in England a man who traveled far and wide
Even in death a legend around him has grown
One might say of him in a class of his own

A legend in his lifetime and a legend today
Robert Service with rhyming words did have a way
The Poet Laureate of the Yukon when he was in his prime
His legend lives on through the decades of time.
