THE ARCTIC TRAPPER

THE ARCTIC TRAPPER


THE ARCTIC TRAPPER

By Fenton Jones

Oh, give me the life on the silver trail,
Where the traps are neatly strung,
Where you see the print, and you take the hint,
That the next trap will be sprung;
Where you span the crust of the Arctic snow,
When you turn the wolf dogs free,
With a bound and leap, o'er the trail they sweep—
It's the only life for me.
Oh, give me the life where the heather sings
To the howling wolf's refrain,
And you loop the snare with the utmost care,
And the Victor neatly chain;
Where the war-cry rings from the marten's throat
When a Victor grips his knee,
And the lynx will growl when you have him foul—
It's the only life for me.
Oh, give me the life on a star-lit morn,
When the shadows wrap the vale,
When you dress the dogs in their mushing togs
And you hit the winding trail;
When you see the eyes of the captive gleam,
Where the toggle hooks a tree,
And you hang his pelt to your pistol belt—


It's the only life for me.
Oh, give me the life in the twilight gloom,
When you see the candle's ray,
With its luring gleam through the cabin seam,
As you mush the homeward way;
When you get the smell of the frying moose
And a partner's greet of glee.
It's the only life and a lonely life—


But the only life for me.
Oh, the trapper's life is the happy life,
And a useful life as well;
For his catch is worn by the wealthy born,
From the hatchet face to belle;
And he drapes the queen of the social herd,
And drones of the marriage bee;
But he gets the dough for the fur, you know—


It's the only life for me.
