Rudyard Kipling plainly and with great insight describes what masculinity really is, He has a skill at succinctness and plain talking. I printed this poem up and gave it to my son when he was young. He still has the poem.
If is a poem by Kipling giving advice to his son. A classic that was once frowned upon but is now making a comeback.
A beautiful voice with excellent diction
Nothing more to say. I love the poem and always have since i first read it
The poems are more powerful than prose. They convey a wisdom of life time in a few lines. The value of this poem can be understood only by a few. I know a man who has lived by memorising this poem to heart.- Haresh Raichura
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Michael Caine does an excellent job reading this poem that all men should learn by heart and tell their sons.
This is a great poem and a great performance by Michael Caine at a good price.
I love this poem anyway - but Michael Caine does add something to the telling. Really lovely!!
"Doesn't Play Through Amazon Echo!!"
Maybe if this is fixed, otherwise no.
Poetry books, as this is what they are.
It could have played, like all the other books I've bought have....
Disappointment at the lack of playability on Amazon Echo...
I'm sure by now you'll see where I'm going with this?
