Amsterdam

Amsterdam
By

M Saleem Chaudhry

Annelies of Amsterdam is our guide

She  took us to her home town for cosmo's ride
Amsterdam is a city of canals so wide
Where everything is open, not much to hide
The treasures of art, deep sea and culture
She showed with pleasure and with pride
A replica of maritime venture converted
in to museum

A floating Chinese restaurant on low tide
The four major canals, representing past Prince and empress for political
system,

Gentleman And single are reflective of the social profile

The ancestors struggled so hard to build a city of canals and ventured so far
In Far East to Indonesia to spice their lives with  clove, cinnamon and pepper

With the magnificent past, present lessez faire
The future can be doomed if not taken care
p.s Annelies was our tour director for Cosmo's tour of six countries in ten days

    Welcome to PoetrySoup Mohammad. I know this is a late welcome but, I have some very pressing matters going on at the present time. I hope to be back and at full speed in the next couple of weeks. Until then please keep writing and sharing your poetry. Love, Carol

    Lovely and informative write here! Very rich with culture and vivid imagery. I love your message at the end too - All the wonders of our world can be destroyed so easily by the careless hands of humans (of any culture) if we are not cautious. I look forward to more of your work and welcome to the soup!
