Robert Service

Do you recall that happy bike
     With bundles on our backs?
How near to heaven it was like
     To blissfully relax!
In cosy tavern of good cheer
     To doff our heavy packs,
And with a mug of foamy beer

Learn to relax: to clean the mind
     Of fear and doubt and care,
And in vacuity to find
     The perfect peace that's there.
With lassitude of heart and hand,
     When every sinew slacks,
How good to rest the old bean and
          Relax, relax.

Just sink back in an easy chair
     For forty winks or so,
And fold your hands as if in prayer,
     --That helps a lot, you know.
Forget that you are you awhile,
     And pliable as wax,
Just beatifically smile . . .
     Relax, relax, relax.
