    Hark, below, the many-voiced earth,
The chanting of the old religious trees,
Rustle of far-off waters, woven sounds
Of small and multitudinous lives awake,
Peopling the grasses and the pools with joy,
Uttering their meaning to the mystic night!
          The Fire-Bringer. Act ii.
8202
              Passion is power,
And, kindly tempered, saves. All things declare
Struggle hath deeper peace than sleep can bring.
          The Masque of Judgment. Act iii. Sc. 2.

He started with, and he was left behind.

            You have made
The cement of your churches out of tears
And ashes, and the fabric will not stand.
          Captain Craig.

            The gods are growing old;
The stars are singing Golden hair to gray
Green leaf to yellow leaf,—or chlorophyl
To xanthophyl, to be more scientific.
          Captain Craig.

          We are young
And we are friends of time.
          Captain Craig.
 
Rudyard Kipling. (1865–1936)

    So ’ere’s to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your ’ome in the Soudan;
You’re a pore benighted ’eathen but a first-class fightin’ man.
          Fuzzy-Wuzzy.
8208
    ’E’s all ’ot sand an’ ginger when alive
An’ ’e’s generally shammin’ when ’e’s dead.
          Fuzzy-Wuzzy.
