Rudyard Kipling Poems

  • Si
    Si tu peux garder la tête quand tout autour de toi
    Perdez le leur et vous en blâmez;
    Si tu peux te faire confiance quand tous les hommes doutent de toi,
    Mais tenez également compte de leurs doutes: ...
  • Wenn
    Wenn du deinen Kopf behalten kannst, wenn alles um dich herum ist
    Verlieren ihre und beschuldigen Sie;
    Wenn Sie sich selbst vertrauen können, wenn alle Männer an Ihnen zweifeln,
    Aber berücksichtigen Sie auch ihre Zweifel: ...
  • Si
    Si puedes mantener la cabeza cuando se trata de ti
    Están perdiendo la suya y te echan la culpa a ti;
    Si puedes confiar en ti mismo cuando todos los hombres dudan de ti,
    Pero tenga en cuenta también sus dudas: ...
  • Un Dévouement
    Ma nouvelle taille de pierre de taille prend la lumière
    Où cramoisi-blanc les fenêtres s'embrasent;
    Par mon propre travail, avant la nuit,
    Grand surveillant, je fais ma prière. ...
  • Eine Widmung
    Mein neu geschnittener Quader nimmt das Licht
    Wo purpurrot die Fenster flackern;
    Durch meine eigene Arbeit vor der Nacht,
    Großer Aufseher, ich bete. ...

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
Golden Days
 by Robert Service

Another day of toil and strife,
Another page so white,
Within that fateful Log of Life
That I and all must write;
Another page without a stain
To make of as I may,
That done, I shall not see again
Until the Judgment Day.
