All English Sonnets
How many people really understand,
Your vision for your people. No purlieu,
Or hurdles, in its path, can ever stand.
How many people really measure you,
With openness of mind, impartial view,
How many people see the golden strand,
That passes through your nature, through and through,
How many people feel the magic band.
Which you have always wielded in your land,
O! I am certain, really very few,
Have understood the magic of your hand,
Engaged in building future grand and new.
For people of Kashmir. Like a lion,
You continue to carry your ensign.
