God took the allure of awesome angels
and the pulchritude of priceless jewels.
God fetched the freshness of fountains; 
and the matchless might of mountains.
God caught the coolness of dew at dawn, 
and the soothing relief of luxury lawn. 
God reaped the rare radiance of a rainbow, 
and the sweet voice of a special sparrow. 
God reached for the royalty of a loyal queen 
and the mystery of things unseen.
God wielded the wisdom of ages past 
and the freedom of stormy blast;
God garnished the generous grace of nature
with the patience of eternal adventure.
 God sought the sweetness of honey 
and the amazing acceptability of money.
God wrapped the riches of mother earth; 
with the reality of heaven and earth.
God mixed the mildness of twilight moon
with the warmth of sun at noon.
God picked The purity of winter snow 
and the glory of heaven's glow... 
God then combined all these features 
to make a compassionate creature. 
To me she is an alluring and amazing art
but her parent named her Zuliat.
Wishing her a wonderful birthday
Filled with great joy all the way.

    Hello Adeleke... Beautiful poem. You picked the form as qasida, it is not! As a rule qasida is longer than ghazal, but it follows the same system of rhyme. Check the definition and examples. Yours is a beautiful Masnavi!...
