The Kipling and Bellamy combination again and Jon says, “Kipling does do wonderment very well. This tune is somewhat upstaged by Bellamy’s On Board A 98, but it’s powerful nonetheless.”
From the Just So Stories. I can still remember my mum reading them to me, although it’s more of an mental picture rather than the actual stories that I recall. I guess they had fallen well and truly out of fashion by the time I was reading to my own kids. We read to them constantly, but there seemed to be a never ending supply of new books that usurped the classics, until I set about Lord Of The Rings, determined to read it to my son before we went to see the films. I just made it, finishing on the morning of the last weekend the first film was showing in our local. Anyway I digress (as usual.) This is brief and lacking the intrigue of Kipling’s more substantial poems, including the above mentioned 98, but the rhyming scheme raised a chuckle. Mainly Norfolk covers Bellamy as usual, but I doubt this has much of a life beyond Peter and Jon.
