Join us to enjoy and share the writings of Rudyard Kipling, all are welcome


Do you recognise these lines ?

There remained only on the barrack-square the blood of man calling from the ground. The hot sun had dried it to a dusky goldbeater-skin film, cracked lozenge-wise by the heat; and as the wind rose, each lozenge, rising a little, curled up at the edge as if it were a dumb tongue. Then a heavier gust blew all away down wind in grains of dark coloured dust.
