    I express total respect to a unique and oblique poetic situation. I wouldn't want for a minute to be in the protagonist's position. (Report) Reply

    My Grandfather lived in Alaska for a period of time (YEARS AGO) and I always think of him when I read this poem, he introduced me to it and I have since memorized it. (Report) Reply

    My Grandfather used to read this to me as a small child. Whenever I read it, it takes me back to him. What a wonderful thing. (Report) Reply

    This is my favorite poem ever written! My father read it to me many times as it was his favorite too. Thanks Dad for introducing me to Robert Service. (Report) Reply

We chaired you through the market-place;

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
