Sing a song of TajMahal

Sing a song of Taj Mahal
A landmark of lovers
And a lover's edifice
With medieval bowers
Tis a mecca for tourists
Tis sensational, tis exceptional, 
tis truly a touristy place

Watch the shine and shimmer 
of its magnificent marbled 
By the glimmer of moonlight 
or sunlight, it's imperial chrome

So it's ironical then
that though Indian I am
I haven't yet been to this 
touristy place

It is truly as they must say, a 
lover's shrine
A place where hearts tend to 
They find it steamy
I find it dreamy
Oh I've to see for myself this 
touristy place.

Each of the marbled minarets
conceal some romantic secrets
For lovers to silently explore
To admire and to adore
A place few lovers could ignore
Ah, you've got to visit this 
touristy place

Two famed lovers lie in the 
legendary vault below
and the stream too has a 
romantic flow
A lover's haven, a paradise on 
Even dead passions there 
undergo a new rebirth
Ah rekindle my love in this 
touristy place!

Extol I may this awesome 
imposing edifice
A greed for pure love is 
perhaps better than avarice

So sing a song of Taj Mahal
A nice nazm or a great ghazal
So forever we have this 
Ah take me my love to this 
touristy place!

    My father visited there and he was very very impressed. Alas i probably won't make the trip from Canada to there. I will have to be content with your lovely poem.

    Wel methinks be it d colonialists, the mongols,or the Romans, many of d historic rulers were into cruel treatment, so i wont b surprisd if dis was true for d mughals too.

    I have been fortunate to have seen documentary recently about this shrine of love. It was built for his second wife (the favourite one). Years ago, Princess Diana visited it - but she was on her own. The photo taken of her sitting on a bench with the Taj Mahal in the background, summed up how lonely one could be even at such a place, which is a shrine. I enjoyed reading your poem as it had brought many images to my mind..... Thank you for visiting and commenting on my poem. Su
