Springtime longing

By: Peer Mohammad Amir Qureshi

I am afar from my motherland so dear,

Yearning for the springtime so clear,

The blooming mustard fields I recall,

And the captivating apple trees tall.

But now the temperature’s like a haze,

And I’m left with a longing gaze,

For the land I left behind,

And the beauty I cannot find

The old man’s gaze was full of lust,

On her daughter’s youth it did thrust

But in this land of turmoil and pain,

It’s hard to see that peace again.

May the day come when all is calm,

And people can sing a joyful psalm,

Let’s pray for peace to reign once more,

In Kashmir, our beloved shore.
