Rudyard Kipling

Fastness

Tennison
--The Muse Among the Motors (1900-1930)
This is the end whereto men toiled
  Before thy coachman guessed his fate,--
  How thou shouldst leave thy, 'scutcheoned gate
On that new wheel which is the oiled--

To see the England Shakespeare saw
  (Oh, Earth, 'tis long since Shallow died!
  Yet by yon farrowed sow may hide 
Some blue deep minion of the Law)--

To range from Ashby-de-la-Zouch
  By Lyonnesse to Locksley Hall,
  Or haply, nearer home, appal
Thy father's sister's staid barouche.
