Subject: RE: Re: Music to Kipling poem
I have been known to have the occasional Kipple myself. Mind you, I was once asked if I liked Dickens. The next thing I remember is waking up outside the library...

On a more serious (and possibly relevant) note I must admit I am not fond of poetry. I could never, and probably never will, go into raptures over the grace of a well penned sonnet. As soon as I heard Kiplings words set to music though I knew at least one part of my poetic blind spot had been removed. The musis just made all the difference to me. It was like a veil being lifted. So, a belated thanks to Rudyard and Peter:-)

A good reference site if you fancy a Kipple yourself is
