THE CREMATION OF SAM MCGEE


PAINTING 006 -
There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee.

for the complete text, look up Robert Service's The Cremation of Sam McGee.
