Heart O' The North

Robert Service

And when I come to the dim trail-end,
     I who have been Life's rover,
This is all I would ask, my friend,
     Over and over and over:

A little space on a stony hill
     With never another near me,
Sky o' the North that's vast and still,
     With a single star to cheer me;

Star that gleams on a moss-grey stone
     Graven by those who love me --
There would I lie alone, alone,
     With a single pine above me;

Pine that the north wind whinneys through --
     Oh, I have been Life's lover!
But there I'd lie and listen to
     Eternity passing over.
