S 11-17-01 I am 42 and live in the west end of Glasgow (Scotland) and I have been inspired so often by the poems of Robert Service. I have found in his verses a great deal to uplift my spirit and found inspiration to pen some poems of my own. Robert service is truly a great poet of the people. Great page an many thanks for the sterling work you have put into it. I found a news clipping in one of his books I bought in an old bookshop reporting his death and it said he left £200 pounds to be given each year to the 'second' best Scholar in Glasgow Academy (Scotland) that I guess says it all, he always admired the underdog. mailto:stephen_gillon@hotmail.com


B 11-16-01 It's hard for me to pick out a favorite poem as I love so many of his works...I have given my son a very old book set of his works...I also look for what I can find of RWS....I used to know a gruff old drunk who could recite all Robert's poems...better than any professional actor alive...breathtaking...


DF 11-12-01  I am 14 yrs old and live in Shelby N.C. I have become very interested in the work of Robert Service after choosing him as a poet in a school project. mailto:derekfitzgerald@carolina.rr.com

FN 11-9-01 Robert was a fantastic man an example to us all. The site has really re-kindled my interest in poetry, after 50 years. Now I have the time and perspective to appreciate it more than ever. Thank you for giving me the opportunity, I'll be back for more.


L 11-8-01 I discovered Robert W Service in high school, acquired Songs Of A Sourdough and love his poetry. This is a great site and I will be back to read more later.


GW 11-7-01 I learned of Robert Service from my Grandfather who used to read his poems to me. I thoroughly enjoyed them and have read the book "Tales from the Yukon." When I started my website I thought it would be nice to have links to some of his poems. I have put a link from my website to yours if you don't mind.

CK 11-1-01 Robert Service's poems are truly reachable to the people. His words are powerful, full of imagery yet not above the average man. He captures the mood so that you feel it, as if you were there and one can hear what the gravely voice must sound like that would speak such words. "The Men That Don't Fit In" was read at the funeral service of a fisherman who "Fit" the description perfectly. He was cut from a different piece of cloth and died while diving for his catch. He did not fit the mold of your average man, and the poem was most fitting for the moment. Not a dry eye amongst a large group of macho friends. It was the perfect poem for the perfect moment.


TB 10-26-01 I was just re-introduced to Robert Service when a friend's mother gave him an old edition of his poetry. Each one that I read becomes my favorite, at least for a little while. He is so real...sometimes painful, sometimes gay and always true. I'm so glad to see this site!
