O' Paris, The City Of Love - Poem by Amitava Sur

O’ my loving Paris, the City of Love
The cultural center, whom I adore and endear.
A city with art and abundance of culture
Where ever you look around will find amazing sculpture.
This city is ornamented and enriched with immortal write
A city, with treasures of famous paintings with delight.
Humming with legendary poems and play writes
Being vibrant with amazing dance, music and play.

Renowned for it’s stunning perfume and dresses
With classic Literature and Art works to name.
A city with Maupassant, Rodin and Dumas
Having Moulin Rouge, Louvre and
The Memorable Eiffel Tower with millions' love.

That city had bled with innocents’ blood
With tyrants’ and extremists’ inhuman fire.
Their beastly approach towards ruining civilization
With mindless savagery in killing innocents
Will beget them what, they even don’t know
But they do these satanic acts, ruining our civilization!

Mean extremism can never win at last
Good senses will surely prevail upon the brutal evils.

    Love your comparison of Paris, the cultural center with all it's beauty and artistic grace, along with famous people and the Eiffel tower to the barbaric ways of isis - killing and maiming many others through bloodshed and satanic acts of violence towards innocent people. In the end hoping good will prevail. A very thought-provoking and intelligent poem, Amitava! Thank you for sharing it with us. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    The recent brutal attack on France has literally jolted not only the French people, but people all over the world! Life has become so insecure in all parts of the world! Who can check this menace called terrorism! If the miscreants had learned..... 'It is easy to destroy, but so hard to build'! Italy has been the cultural centre of the world! A timely write!

    what has happened to Paris is undoubtedly an inhuman act, you have painted the city with its colour and ancient grandeur using beautiful images, a well-composed poem, thanks for sharing, Great Poet, if you find time please read some of my poems and leave your comments. (Report) Reply
