The Ship That Found Herself

Rudyard Kipling

 Next Poem          

We now, held in captivity,
Spring to our bondage nor grieve--
See now, how it is blesseder,
Brothers, to give than receive!
Keep trust, wherefore we were made,
Paying the debt that we owe;
For a clean thrust, and the shear of the blade,
Will carry us where would go.

      Just wanted to share my thoughts on 'The Ship That Found Herself'! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The overarching themes of strength, resilience, and duty really resonated with me. There's something special about a poem that can inspire and provoke deep thoughts at the same time. Made me appreciate the art of poetry even more 👍📖
