A Servant To Servants

Rating: 3.0
I didn't make you know how glad I was
To have you come and camp here on our land.
I promised myself to get down some day
And see the way you lived, but I don't know!
With a houseful of hungry men to feed
I guess you'd find.... It seems to me
I can't express my feelings any more
Than I can raise my voice or want to lift
My hand (oh, I can lift it when I have to).
Did ever you feel so? I hope you never.
It's got so I don't even know for sure

'There's nothing but a voice-like left inside That seems to tell me how I ought to feel, And would feel if I wasn't all gone wrong.' - A kind of feeling that we all experience at times, perhaps! Glad to see this poem chosen as the 'Modern Poem of the Day'!

Powerful, meaningful and touching write. I have learned another side of life in this very well expressed poem. Robert Frost's pen is just marvelous! Great poem.

I memorized this poem and performed it in my English Poetry Class in 1970. I got a standing ovation and an A for it. I have never forgotten that poem. And, I never will. Robert Frost was my favorite of all time.
