Indian Sonnet 2019

Mandeep, our guide, asked that we chose, just three

Favoured points from our recent escapade

But how can we start to choose, when we see

The range of diff’rent journeys we have made?

How can the Taj Mahal, be so compared

With fine silk threads in carpets wove by hand?

The beauty of the dance and music shared,

Twixt dancers, zither, drum and piper band?

‘Tis not for us to differentiate

Between a few of India’s greatest arts

When we, just thankful to participate

Should see the whole and not the single parts.

For day, by day, surprises unprepared

Became unique by fun and friendship shared.
