If American schools still taught reading and writing, Kipling would be a good start for the kiddies. But I'll never forget the look on my college writing prof's face when I named my lifetime favorite poet (then; over half a lifetime ago.) He had to massage his stiff upper lip so that the spectacular sneer wouldn't cramp up and set in place.
But I learned so much from Rudyard Kipling. He was a product of his time, but he kept his inner child alive, thanks to the early abuse of strangers in loco parentis. Some of his work, especially after the deaths of his children, are rending. Life did not treat him as kindly as he treated it, or others.

Hymn Before Action
The earth is full of anger, The seas are dark with wrath, The Nations in their harness Go up against our path: Ere yet we loose the legions -- Ere yet we draw the blade, Jehovah of the Thunders, Lord God of Battles, aid!
