A Dream of the Past

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), "The Mutiny of the Mavericks," Mine Own People (New York: The Nottingham Society, ©1909), pp. 97-130 (at 124):
The Saxon in Heaven's just balance is weighed,
    His doom like Belshazzar's in death has been cast,
And the hand of the venger shall never be stayed
    Till his race, faith, and speech are a dream of the past.
