Thou name they thus take
an intellect seems to be in the make
the teachers have thou’s t speak
the one who is at the peak
the peers doth have thee feel
no one to whom thou kneel
the graciousness have it all sweet
mercy? nay! make it more discreet
what thou have in mind to reveal
the essence of life for love to conceal
thou strength of abstracts
wishful thinking of extracts
thine eyes having the shine
shall thou put its onus on a pine
weakness have thou rotten
shall it ever be forgotten?
Thou lines of wonders
make thee lost in thunders
so leave thy hay of pride
to get thee a wonderful bride.
Khan Elie Gohar Durrani.
