Many congratulations to Arthur for the very good site. The work is well set out, delighting and interesting, celebrating the life and work of my father RW Service.
Owing to my great age, my remaining living daughter : Mrs. Anne Longepe and my grand daughter Charlotte Longepe : J.Longepe@wanadoo.fr, can answer to all questions concerning her grandfather and great grandfather, RW Service. Some information is pointed out on this website.
My favorite poem is Fleurette.
I wish a pleasant reading and a lot of pleasure to RW Service's fans.
Thank you for getting in touch.

Many thanks to both Iris and Anne for this contribution, their kind words, and for all the other items contributed to this web site in the Anne Longepe Collection within the library. The poem "Fleurette" is in the collection "Rhymes of a Red Cross Man" and is also available via the library.
GO 2-3-02 I have two favorite "stanzas", one from the last stanza of Prelude, Ballad of A Bohemian; "and here my simple songs of earth . . .", the other; 1st stanza, Prelude of Lyrics of a Low Brow. "Ah yes, I know my brow is low . . .".
I found this site to be very interesting, and will return for a longer look [formerly from
TS 2-28-02 I am 52 years old, and first I heard of Robert Service was when I was in the 3rd grade and happened to find his book, The Spell Of The Yukon. This book was stuck away back in our classroom, and the teacher tried to talk me out of reading it. As I remember, she said it was above my head and I should opt for her choice of Mother Goose or something she seemed to think might be better reading for me. Well, I'm glad I held on to that book and I read it cover to cover several times before giving it back. I've had a love for poetry and short stories by Service ever since. email@example.com
