Songs of a Sourdough

Here in the 21st Century -- on the cusp of the Singularity -- does anyone read Robert Service any more?

"There are strange things done in the midnight sun . . . ."

How about Hugh Antoine d'Arcy?

. . . . did you ever see a girl, for whom your soul you'd give,
With a form like Venus De Milo, too beautiful to live,
With eyes that would beat the Koh-i-noor,
And a wealth of chestnut hair?
