Rudyard Kipling
Poems


       To T. A.



         I have made for you a song,
         And it may be right or wrong,
       But only you can tell me if it's true;
         I have tried for to explain
         Both your pleasure and your pain,
       And, Thomas, here's my best respects to you!

         O there'll surely come a day
         When they'll give you all your pay,
       And treat you as a Christian ought to do;
         So, until that day comes round,
         Heaven keep you safe and sound,
       And, Thomas, here's my best respects to you!
                                              R. K.
