Sing a song of the Taj Mahal

Sing a song of Tajmahal
a fine nazm or a ghazal

Of this landmark for lovers
Ah, a lover's edifice
Complete with medieval bowers
It's a Mecca for tourists!
Tis sensational, tis exceptional
tis truly a touristy place.

Watch the shimmer of its magnificent marbled dome
Moonlight or sunlight, it glimmers of imperial chrome
It's ironical then
that though Indo-Arabian 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 duly incline

They find it steamy
I find it dreamy
Oh, I've got to see for myself this touristy place

Each of the marbled minarets
conceal such romantic secrets
for lovers to silently explore
to admire and to adore
A place human lovebirds couldn't ignore.
Ah you've got to visit this touristy place!

Two famed lovers lie in the legendary vault below
and the stream too it has a romantic flow
It's a lovers haven and paradise on earth
Even dead passions there undergo a rebirth

Ah, rekindle my love for you in this touristy place!

Extol I may this awesome imposing edifice
A greed for pure love is perhaps better than avarice
Löng live the legend of Shah jahan and Mumtaz mahal
Long live love and love like a Moghul
so forever we have this monumental grace!

Yeah take me my luv to this touristy place!

    "Marbled dome" and "lover's shrine" - you capture the essence of this place of "romantic secrets" - - an inspiring read.

    Amazing. That flowed so well and I was happy after I read it. It's amazing, the intention to find love, not just an attraction. Well done.

      You have tempted me to dream that I may get to see this wonderful sight. A goal to aim for, new memories perhaps. It is one day at a time for me but dreaming will do for now.

        Am in the same boat. I'm in another country so it would be too expensive to go there with kids n hubby at the moment. But hopefully before I die. Yes pal warm thanx n sweet dreams to u
