A while back, I was contacted by Susan Bertram from www.allthingsif.org because I had mentioned in a blog post that Rudyard Kipling’s “If” was one of my favorite poems of all time.
The poem was quoted in “See How They Run,” a British farce we performed at Spring Valley High School. My French Grandmother had a set of Rudyard Kipling’s complete works at her house (that I later inherited), so when we visited that summer, I memorized it.
The blog post Susan referred to, however, was published in 2009. Instead of editing that post and linking to www.allthingsif.org THEN, I figured it would be much more fun to talk about them NOW.
And since I was already dressed up as a princess, I recited the poem for you LIVE.
