One of my first favourite poems

Years and years ago I was trying to get into more poetry. I liked Poe’s poems and had the raven memorized. But I didn’t know many other poets that I really enjoyed. I was in a bookstores poetry section pulling out random books and reading random poems. I picked up Robert service and flipped it open to read this.

By Robert W. Service
‘Twas a year ago and the moon was bright (Oh, I remember so well, so well);
I walked with my love in a sea of light,
And the voice of my sweet was a silver bell.
And sudden the moon grew strangely dull,
And sudden my love had taken wing;
I looked on the face of a grinning skull,
I strained to my heart a ghastly thing.
'Twas but fantasy, for my love lay still
In my arms, with her tender eyes aglow,
And she wondered why my lips were chill,
Why I was silent and kissed her so.
A year has gone and the moon is bright,
A gibbous moon, like a ghost of woe;
I sit by a new-made grave to-night,
And my heart is broken -- it's strange, you know.

Saved an Orphan

Had to kill a bear with my bare hands to do so. Kids safe. Wandered off somewhere. I’m tired from the bear fight but will look for him soon. Just need a little rest.
