A great poem, but with some flaws. I'm not very learned with lots of the 'great' poets, and I don't profess to be in any league of similarity, but I do have common sense, reason and logic, which I'm going to attempt to apply now. I'll just share two examples of critism: should we not make thoughts our aim? Is not philosophising a thought process, and should we not know how and why things happen? This among other things, such as study, etc. Now with my second example: triumph and disaster are not imposters from my perspective, but are very real aspects of life: is it not good to be proud with triumph, and is disaster not very real and sad. Now I've been looking for any connotations, or any cryptic aspect of these two factors pointed out - and reading between the lines, but my intellect has found none. But if you are perhaps enlightened to what these two aspects really denote, please lighten my hardship! I don't mean to critique such an acclaimed poet, but am I not entitled an opinon! Sorry to be a bad comment. Thank you. Take care. Bye.
Think what you will Rudyard wouldn't have minded.
