The Song of the English, p. 63. Caption on facing page:by W. Heath Robinson. 1909. Tipped in color plate, 6 7/8 x 4 15/16 inches. Kipling's
Here in the womb of the world -- here on the tie-ribs of earth
Words, and the words of men, flicker and flutter and beat --
Warning, sorrow and gain, salutation and mirth --
For a Power troubles the Still that has neither voice nor feet.
