POEM: My Kashmir

Kashmir is  full of nature

And there are many creatures,


People there are very humble,

And birds in Kashmir eat the food and crumble

People there are not old

But their culture is like gold,

Tourist places like Gulmarg,

And before that is Tangmarg,

People there live with unity

And they have strong immunity,

People there are very much clean,

That’s why their tradition culture and everything like there nature is green,

There you can listen your heart beat,

But there is not so much heat

Playing bats there are made up of Kashmiri willow,

And people there sleep on soft pillows

There are many fresh water lakes like Dal lake,

And a big lake Wuller lake,

Kashmir carpets and bags are made up of Rugs

And People drink a special tea of Kashmir named kehwa in the mugs.

There is tourist place named Pari Mehal but not Taj Mehal,

Well Kashmir is also known as paradise by Mughal emperor Jehamgir
