‘For my Grandmother’- Poem by Mohammed Zafar Khan 10-H


She is the wise eyes of the family

subtle, humourous and bright

benevolent, scholarly and erudite

still full of vigour and vitality

still living a life of divinity

the root of the family tree.             

she created a strong foundation

For the fruits that were and are yet to be.

Signs of wisdom won

Silvered hair, a wrinkled brow

And a peaceful soul.
