Page 251 - eathen in 'is blindness bows down to wood an' stone; 'E don't obey no orders unless they is 'is own; 'E keeps 'is side-arms awful: 'e leaves 'em all about, An' then comes up the regiment an
Page 304 - Heaven's central gates. Masts in the offing wagged their tops; The swinging waves pealed on the shore; The saffron beach, all diamond drops And beads of surge, prolonged the roar. As I came up from Dymchurch Wall, I saw above the Downs' low crest The crimson brands of sunset fall, Flicker and fade from out the west. Night sank: like flakes of silver fire The stars in one great shower came down; Shrill blew the wind; and shrill the wire Rang out from Hythe to Romney town. The darkly shining salt sea...

Page 428 - Ah! I have known noble ones who lost their highest hope. And then they disparaged all high hopes. They then lived unabashed, gratifying temporary pleasures, and seldom laid out plans for more than a day. " 'Spirit is voluptuousness !' they said. Then the wings of their spirit broke, and now it creeps about, befouling where it gnaws. "Once they thought of becoming heroes; now they are sensualists. The hero is a trouble and a terror to them. "But by my love and hope I conjure thee: cast not away the...

And we were all, you must understand, very distinctly Imperialists also, and professed a vivid sense of the "White Man's Burden." It is a little difficult now to get back to the feelings of that period; Kipling has since been so mercilessly and exhaustively mocked, criticised and torn to shreds; never was a man so violently exalted and then, himself assisting,...
