    awesome! This is about everything really. Health, life and technology and how we use it to serve our needs. But the bigger impact is that it begs for Reflections on our choice of transportation and the harmful effect on man and nature. Nicely done (Report) Reply

    I am also asking the same questions as Kevin Straw. I think here Kipling has fallen off his perch. His words here are insipid. (Report) Reply

    Does anyone know what the connection was beween Kipling, Croydon, TB and R L Stevenson? (Report) Reply

    Even Kipling was caught by man's inner wish to fly. Though the poem is away from his love of India and his vast knowledge of the region and people. (Report) Reply

    Childish pleasure is different from mature pleasure which is lasting forever strong or sick or young or old! A realisation of this truth comes after sometime in life! Nice poem! (Report) Reply

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
