The Basil Plant


The Basil plant is gods abode
Trinity’s blessings in it endowed
Blessed the place where it grows
Air purifies where its fragrance flows

Among all herbs, juices and medicines
Appeared first on ‘Churning the Ocean’
Panacea for ills of physique and mind
Softens speech, prompts actions kind

It cures all cold, coughs and hiccups
Purges of impurities, the spirit ups
Regulates the body’s temperature
Blood circulation and bile profile

Ample of oxygen Basil plant generates
Let your life with divinity venerate
Have Basil plant in your compound
Worship, nurture for health profound

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
