    • POEM: Hunting Song Of The Seeonee Pack by Rudyard Kipling (12/2/2009 8:24:00 PM)

      I first encountered a part of this poem in a 1983 Best of Omni (no.6) . The 3rd stanza (Feet in the jungle...) was quoted at the beginning of a science fiction story (about non-genetically-modified 'werewolves') by Gene Wolfe. Since then, I've read Mr. Kipling's poems as part of English Lit classes, and for leisure in the libraries where I've found them. This is the first time I have seen this poem in its entirety! Very nice. Nice to see someone has made a site with Kipling's poems. Shabash!
      - I also play World of Warcraft. My first character there? A hunter: Seeonee. He (curiously?) came with an English accent. Coincidence? He's still around somewhere, though he's not my main. I named him this after the quote from Mr. Wolfe's story, that I had just reread.
      Thought it (the stanza: self-praise of swiftness/ untrackability/ alertness) sounded cocky enough for a Blood Elf hunter. His most often used Pet? ShereKhan.
      I like to think Mr. Kipling would approve of them getting along. Finally!
