Colors - Poem by Abdul Sattar

There are colours red and green
Brown, yellow, white and blue
Some I took for my imagination
Some I took just for you
Then I thought how they are
So beautiful, good and charming
The green is for cooling heart
While the red is for it’s warming
The blue is for tracing the mind
Beyond the sky and horizon
The white lighting the world
The black is making shades
Of thy charming cheeks
Without that we can not see
The pictures of thy grace
