Six serving men

I have six honest serving men.

They taught me all I knew.

Their names are What, and Why, and When,

And How, and Where, And Who.

I send them over land and sea,

I send them east and west,

But after they have worked for me

I give them all a rest. /…/

But different folks have different views.

I know a person small.

She keeps ten million serving men

Who get no rest at all.

She send them on her own affairs

From the second she opens her eyes —

One million Hows, two million Wheres

And seven million Whys.


Р. Киплинг (1914)

We’re foot—slog—slog—slog—sloggin' over Africa —

Foot—foot—foot—foot—sloggin' over Africa —

(Boots—boots—boots—boots—movin' up an' down again!)

There's no discharge in the war!

Seven—six—eleven—five—nine-an'-twenty mile to-day —

Four—eleven—seventeen—thirty-two the day before —

(Boots—boots—boots—boots—movin' up an' down again!)

There's no discharge in the war!

Don’t—don’t—don’t—don’t—look at what’s in front of you.

(Boots—boots—boots—boots—movin' up an' down again);

Men—men—men—men—men go mad with watchin' em,

An' there's no discharge in the war!

Try—try—try—try—to think o' something different —

Oh—my—God—keep—me from goin' lunatic!

(Boots—boots—boots—boots—movin' up an' down again!)

There's no discharge in the war!

The Appeal

If I have given you delight

By aught that I have done,

Let me lie quiet in that night

Which shall be yours anon;

And for the little, little span

The dead are borne in mind,

Seek not to question other than

The books I leave behind.

Blue Roses - R. Kipling

Roses red and roses white

Plucked I for my love's delight.

She would none of all my posies--

Bade me gather her blue roses.

Half the world I wandered through,

Seeking where such flowers grew.

Half the world unto my quest

Answered me with laugh and jest.

Home I came at wintertime,

But my silly love had died,

Seeking with her latest breath

Roses from the arms of Death.

It may be beyond the grave

She shall find what she would have.

Mine was but an idle quest--

Roses white and red are best
