Robert Service has long been my favorite of all poets, I first came across his poem "The Spell of the Yukon" when I was 12 years old, it was a time in my life when I needed hope, and somehow this poem provided that for me.
Since then, I have collected most of his works, and have found great inspiration in much of his writing. Though this poet may never be recognized among Tennyson and Keats, his works have become a part of me and my life and will always be held in highest esteem.
Bit by bit, as time provides, I am making accessible more and more of his works, feel free to browse through the material as it becomes available in HTML:
It is one of my hobbies to recite poetry. Normally it is Service's poems that I recite. I've put a few of my recitals on my recitals page. These are sound files in the MP3 format. Chances are, if your computer has speakers, you will be able to download and listen to them.

- This guy seems to be every bit as much the fan of Service's poetry as I am. Except, he's obviously had more time and energy to put into it. If you want to know about Service, see pictures, hear his voice, and just about anything else relating to him, go here.
