Your Poem

My poem may be yours
In melody and tone,
If in its rhythm you can readA music of your own;
If in its pale woof you can

I sought Him on the purple seas,
I sought Him on the peaks aflame;
Amid the gloom of giant
And canyons lone I called His name;

The Cremation of Sam McGee

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;

The Men That Dont Fit In

There's a race of men that don't fit in, A race that can't stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will
They range the field and they rove the flood, And they climb the mountain's crest;

The Spell of the Yukon

I wanted the gold, and I sought it,
I scrabbled and mucked like a slave
Was it famine or scurvy — I fought it;

My Ancestors

A barefoot boy I went to school To save a cobbler's fee,
For though the porridge pot was full A frugal folk were we;
We baked our bannocks, spun our wool, And counted each bawbee
We reft our living from the soil, And I was shieling ...

The Ballad Of The Ice-Worm Cocktail

A pane of glass was in his eye, and stockings on his stems
Upon the shoulder of his coat a leather pad he wore,
To rest his deadly rifle when it wasn't seeking gore;

If dogs could speak,
O Mademoiselle,
What funny stories they could tell
For instance, take your little "peke,"How awkward if the dear could speak

In the gay, gleamy morn I adore to go walking,
And oh what sweet people I meet on my way
I hail them with joy for I love to be talking,
Although I have nothing important to say
