Here is a poem by Kipling which is undeniably a great poem.

Well, Orwell denies it. But Yeats and Eliot were certain of it, and they were the poets:

This poem begs to be read out loud.   It is easy to read it correctly.  But none of the above get it quite right, the combination of martial rythm and echoes of the early English ballads and grim mortality.   I wish I could read it to y'all.
