Robert Service (1874-1958) was a worldy traveler and accomplished poet, orignially from England. During the German Invasion of France he fled to North America where he remained for the bulk of his life. He traveled the world while living in Canada before finally returning to France where he spent the short remainder of his life. Service spent most of his time pursueing random vagabond careers in whatever port he found himself. From Turkey to Alaska, England to Mexico, he traveled the world writing poetry when he found the chance.
As I find time and pour through my books and old papers, I'll begin posting some of his poetry here.
