Journey To A Sceptred Isle -

Journey To A Sceptred Isle - Mysterious land's of lavish greenery Breathtaking view's. Indescribably scenery. The land and irrigated pastures, ever so fertile In the midst of the Atlantic, a floating pearl, a magnificent isle. An island inhabited by the mighty and proud Siberian winds circulate the lonesome isle. A quintessential shroud The upper north. Rough highlands and mountains The lower south. Fine abbeys and fountains. An island, a speck. Minute and petite Do not forsake this treasury of power. It's aura emit's mystique. Follow the beckoning light. Think not of these lands barbarious Expected the unexpected. A famed nation where men grow victorious. Clasped the entire world in it's tight fist It's tongue and culture spread like a soulful mist. Grasped the lands of their forefathers, with its might Undeniable power - an empire which exceeded the sky in height The lands where the chilling winds bite And the glaring snow, creeps in through the whistling night Yet the extreme south experiences a Caribbean breeze In the midst of a humble, everlasting freeze The lands of inspiration and desire. A cornucopia of hope A gamble, which only the brave and bold, take and cope. An open chest of emeralds. A civilized society What is the price they shall pay, discrimination, and labelled the minority? The lands great King’s and Queen’s viciously fought A place wise sage’s and priest’s exhaustively taught. A place inhabited by the pompous and the scrupulous However, like all goldmines ; come impurities and the perfidious. We pay our respect to Haji Naushah Ganj Baksh, now starts the adventure Farewell Hindustan – land of the Indus. Into the Unknown we venture. Drawing near and near, to the mysterious lands. Sleep deprived, induced insomnia Their feet’s touch the fresh grass. Can it be? Mighty Britannia. -My fathers spiritual, and emotionally crushing journey to set up a new life in the west. dedicated to him.
