Thread Name: Happy! – Dec 30 (Kipling born 30 Dec 1865)
Subject: RE: Happy! – Dec 30 (Kipling)
Has anyone ever done a Kipling Night? In the same kind of fashion as a Burns Night. The Scottish have a well deserved todo for R. Burns. I'm (I'm not English so please set me straight if I'm wrong) thinking that the same sort of reverence would be held for Kipling by the English people as Burns is for the Scottish, no? "Danny Dever" could 'March in the Mutton' by fiddle, 'Frankie the butcher by Trade' could commence with the carving. Then "Tommy" could recite "We Have Fed Our Sea" & at the evenings' end every one would lineup behind 'Sir Richard' & march out as he sang "Follow Me Home".
Be good for a "Lark in the Morning" eh?
