Rudyard Kipling

 

PREFACE

 

 

_I have collected in this volume practically all the

verses and chapter-headings scattered through my books.

In several cases where only a few lines of verse were

originally used, I have given in full the song, etc., from

which they were taken._

 

_RUDYARD KIPLING._

 

 

 

 

'_CITIES AND THRONES AND POWERS_'

 

 

_Cities and Thrones and Powers,

  Stand in Time's eye,

Almost as long as flowers,

  Which daily die.

But, as new buds put forth

  To glad new men,

Out of the spent and unconsidered Earth,

  The Cities rise again.

 

This season's Daffodil,

  She never hears,

What change, what chance, what chill,

  Cut down last year's:

But with bold countenance,

  And knowledge small,

Esteems her seven days' continuance

  To be perpetual.

 

So Time that is o'er-kind,

  To all that be,

Ordains us e'en as blind,

  As bold as she:

That in our very death,

  And burial sure,

Shadow to shadow, well persuaded, saith,

  'See how our works endure!'_
