VERSE | BEAUTIFUL LAHORE

LISTEN TO THE POEM BEING READ HERE: https://vt.tiktok.com/ZSdfyAeep/
The green of its grass
The gleam of its lights
The vestiges of old world
Splendour in its sights

The scent of its jasmine
Its blooming beds of flowers
Its sun yellow amalthas*
Pendent in graceful bowers

Its little gardens street-side
Manicured like queens
Its men-in-waiting
Watching over the scene

Its shiny happy people
Their hearts full of joy
The radiant faces
Of every girl and boy

Its golden brightness
Its days all a-shimmer
Its chimerical nights
Purple skies, stars a-glimmer

Its spirit and its grit
Its beauty that I behold
Fills me with sweet nostalgia
This place full of soul

This is my beloved city
That I wax eloquent for
This City of Gardens
My beautiful Lahore
* Amalthas: Indian Laburnum
