Bahrain, my Dear Country

Bahrain, my dear country
You ask how I love thee?
Would you ask on any day
For a verbal answer, I would say
With my heart and every part
of my mind that flows with art
It is a fact I cannot find
Words sufficiently kind
To express the Joy, Honour, and Pride
That within my soul shyly hide
Like a young, innocent, virgin maid
Engaged, and her cheeks thus fade
Within her blush, as her eyes lay
-Gently-, their site, -in a tender way-
On her beloved, and so she knows
That neither a rose empty of flaws
Nor the most poetic of phrases
Portray the way my heart embraces
And deep inside, your name, places
As the most special, of special places

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
