A Rainbow Of Colorful Eggs - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I have lost many beautiful baskets,
Basket of love with a rainbow inside,
Nicely painted with a brush of love,
Respect for others and amazing abide!

I am looking for a basket I used to see,
The basket containing nicely painted eggs,
I have lost that basket but looking for it,
Where are my old and dusty kegs?

It’s somewhere in the locked stores,
Missing the keys and the locks are rusted,
If I could break these jammed rusty locks!
Looking too ugly and too disgusted!

    the use of kegs throws me/makes me wonder what it refers to. but it DOES rhyme nicely! ;)

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    from Google, i guess:

    plural noun: kegs

    a small barrel, especially one of less than 30 gallons or (in the UK) 10 gallons.
    synonyms: barrel, cask, vat, butt, tun, hogshead; historicalfirkin
    the beer is delivered in kegs
    a pressurized metal barrel with a valve at one end, used to store and dispense beer or other carbonated drinks.

    is it the locks OR you, the searcher, which/who is ugly and too disgusted? ? !

    why does English have to have words with seemingly opposite definitions? ? I mean the same word with different definitions!

    Search Results
    1. a•bide
    verb: abide; 3rd person present: abides; past tense: abided; past participle: abided; gerund or present participle: abiding
    1. 1.
    accept or act in accordance with (a rule, decision, or recommendation) .
    I said I would abide by their decision
    synonyms: comply with, obey, observe, follow, keep to, hold to, conform to, adhere to, stick to, stand by, act in accordance with, uphold, heed, accept, go along with, acknowledge, respect, defer to
    he expected everybody to abide by the rules
    antonyms: flout, disobey

    2. 2.
    be unable to tolerate (someone or something) .
    if there is one thing I cannot abide it is a lack of discipline
    synonyms: tolerate, bear, stand, put up with, endure, take, countenance;
    I can't abide the smell of cigarettes

    I think “abide” in the poem refers to tolerance. am I correct? ?

    and “kegs”? another word for basket? I come up with barrels and kettles, but not basket. or is it some Pakistani use of ‘keg’ I don’t find?

    Easter was one of my favorite holy-days/holidays, but not for religious reasons. it WAS the baskets with colored eggs and CANDY! ! ! a chocolate Bunny if I was lucky. it’s one reason my teeth have so many cavities OR are missing altogether!

    I hope you find your basket, young man. perhaps a crowbar would help? are the ‘locks’ or YOU looking old and disgusted? ?

    I am sorry your colorful easter eggs might go rotten inside the locked store with the keys rusted and unable to be used! (Report) Reply
