    In my opinion Kipling was a man who had The Common Touch and a wonderful insight to the feelings that make us human.

    very unique. A ballad of burials is a well written poem of his

  • Geoffrey Taylor (8/27/2013 3:23:00 PM)

    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.

    Kipling is indeed unique and novel in terms of poetic style. He's one of a kind. You need to have an open mind to understand his views and concept of the world. I admit, I also learn from his style.

  • Vikram Aarella - The Poem Shooter (5/19/2006 9:45:00 AM)

    I did not like Mr Kipling's protryal of india in some of his poems.

  • Vikram Aarella - The Poem Shooter (5/19/2006 9:44:00 AM)

    Mr Kipling might have born in India, but i did not in some of his poetry like the potryal of India.

Best Poem of Rudyard Kipling


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream- -and not make dreams your master;
If you can think- -and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the ...

The Wishing-Caps

Life's all getting and giving,
I've only myself to give.
What shall I do for a living?
I've only one life to live.
End it? I'll not find another.
Spend it? But how shall I best?
Sure the wise plan is to live like a man
And Luck may look after the rest!
Largesse! Largesse, Fortune!
