"this is the hour of pride and power"

This is a poem from the Jungle Book (see bookmark for page 194); the full version goes like this:

Now Chil the Kite brings home the night

That Mang the Bat sets free--The herds are shut in byre and hut,
For loosed till dawn are we.This is the hour of pride and power,
Talon and tush and claw.Oh, hear the call!--Good hunting all
That keep the Jungle Law!
