Subject: RE: Meanings, Kipling army song
Oh yes, plenty of folkies and filkers have put tunes to Kipling's poems -- including me. And yes, he was far more than an Imperial apologist; his poems are as singable, and his prose as readable, today as more than a century ago.
There are MP3s of Kipling poems set to my tunes at my website (www.lesliefish.com) and Joe Bethancourt's (link). Joe does an especially haunting version of "Helen All Alone".
I have three albums of my tunes to Kipling's poems, and a fourth in the works. Enjoy!
