The reality of Kipling's words in one woman's life unfolds in dramatic fashion.


   Gentleman from Khartoum

"Shalom", she whispered. He bent low to kiss
Her hand and then her lips. 
The London flight to Brussels was announced. 
One last caress - and she was gone.
A holiday so bright with promise paled.
Their brief communion; human enterprise
That reckoned little with established code.
Said Bagsair was lost to jet and skies.

November rains and Tuesday's mail arrived;
The envelope postmarked Khartoum contained
Three photographs (no message tucked inside).
He'd kept his promise -yet it pained her so.
And Kipling's thoughts on East and West
Had run the gauntlet of another test.
