I Have Not Seen A Pearl - Poem by umaprosad das

I have not seen a pearl,
But seen a dew point,
On the tip of a grass leaf,
To glitter brightly in the morning sun.

I have not seen a royal hero,
But seen a poor brave boy,
Full of happiness and joy,
Who sacfificed his life for somebody's benefaction.

I have not seen a fairy,
But seen many a Cinderallas,
Weeping inside the kitchen,
Awaiting hopelessly for a gallant saviour.

I have not seen you, Oh my God!
But seen the good in each and all
Whether it is in a big or in a small
Of your art and inert in the world everywhere.
