In The Bazaars Of Hyderabad

a Poem by Sarojini Naidu

What do you sell O ye merchants ?

Richly your wares are displayed.

Turbans of crimson and silver,

Tunics of purple brocade,

Mirrors with panels of amber,

Daggers with handles of jade.


What do you weigh, O ye vendors?

Saffron and lentil and rice.

What do you grind, O ye maidens?

Sandalwood, henna, and spice.

What do you call , O ye pedlars?

Chessmen and ivory dice.


What do you make,O ye goldsmiths?

Wristlet and anklet and ring,

Bells for the feet of blue pigeons

Frail as a dragon-fly’s wing,

Girdles of gold for dancers,

Scabbards of gold for the king.


What do you cry,O ye fruitmen?

Citron, pomegranate, and plum.

What do you play ,O musicians?

Cithar, sarangi and drum.

what do you chant, O magicians?

Spells for aeons to come.


What do you weave, O ye flower-girls

With tassels of azure and red?

Crowns for the brow of a bridegroom,

Chaplets to garland his bed.

Sheets of white blossoms new-garnered

To perfume the sleep of the dead

Fascinating glimpse into the world of this culture.
Love the poem!
What ever happened to Jethro Tull? I saw him on stage, a long time ago in Austin, Texas. He was quite unique!

Antonio, I have been out of pocket, cruising the Caribbean, with my sonI Unfortunately, I brought back a nasty cold, so that's prolonged my PB absence. I fly back home this Friday (2/24/17), at which time I'll resume my usual PB participation! Hope all's well with you & your crew!
Cheers!
Jay
