An antique coloured lithograph after woodblock prints by William Nicholson from "An Almanac of Twelve Sports. Words by Rudyard Kipling."
Read here the Moral roundly writ
For him that into battle goes
Each soul that, hitting hard and hit
Encounters gross or ghostly foes:
Prince, blown by many overthrows
Half blind with shame, half choked with dirt,
Man cannot tell, but Allah knows
How much the other side was hurt.
