Note from Joe: Housman’s nickname was Terence. Although this poem is long, it’s been a favorite of mine since my college days. The reason I liked it in college will become obvious as you read it. But please, don’t drink and drive.

This poem is from A.E. Housman’s 1896 collection of verse called A Shropshire Lad.
A hypertext copy of A Shropshire Lad is available from Project Bartleby.
