King Henry VII
and the Shipwrights

(notes edited by John Radcliffe and John McGivering)


Published in Rewards and Fairies (1910) where it follows “The Wrong Thins”.

The poem has an echo of “King Edward the Fourth and the Tanner of Tamworth” in Percy’s Reliques, 2nd ser. Bk. 1, a book which Kipling was familiar with.
