    I have read a lot of poems by Saadat Tahir and in the light of all those this autobiography feels an honest and realistic self-appraisal. What is surprising about Saadat is that being a science student he could peruse poetry so ardently.He manipulates his imagination and God-gifted abilities to write poetry that serves as a catharsis for every sensitive heart.
    According to his own words in his poems we find a romanticist and a realist converging to knit fabric of poesy to clothe life and existence in a dainty attire. We can find poems from love, wives, daughters to society and parks and gardens- from abstract to material on almost all topics and versatile themes. His perfect rhymes give the poetry a lyrical quality. I must admit here that I learnt the choice of diction through reading his poems. I have read some other recognized Pakistani poets in English like Shahid Hussain, Taufiq Raffat and Zulfiqar Ghos. I honestly feel that Saadat Tahir is another one on this list in Pakistan. I wish him all the best in life and progress in poetry. About the poets of my country:
    I could never have dreamt that there were such goings-on
    in the world between the covers of books,
    such sandstorms and ice blasts of words, , ,
    such staggering peace, such enormous laughter,
    such and so many blinding bright lights, , ,
    splashing all over the pages
    in a million bits and pieces
    all of which were words, words, words,
    and each of which were alive forever
    in its own delight and glory and oddity and light.

    We all knew it! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    that this tour will bring a renaissance within you-for the revival of the poet inside with new saps and buds --the three new poems are descriptive enough to give us a glimpse of the historical cities by your eyes and the strong associative images you used in your peculiar diction! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    Tuscan Rhapsody is simply wonderful-----
    looking forward for more-------

    You walk with words like a waltz in the sky, shining the stars is when you hit the words perfectly, talent yes you got it..wise mind yes you have it, and emotion...can we see it? so i can say you are born with a gift underneath your fingers to pick words nicely in poetry even when you write sometimes are a very strong person, stubborn cousin, and can be funny-teaser, a mixture of a unique person. You have more to do in life, i am sure the happiness know the address of your heart to mail some bright in the future, so dont worry about things, we shall pray you all the best and May God protect you and bless your family too, keep writing and let free yourself to speak for universe and the creatures inside, include coconut hahaha_Unwritten Soul

    Cockbusters; Saadat your poem takes some unusual twist and turns, you have a delicate measure of expression. Stay in touch, Eltone

    Earth Wind and Fire inspires my art (when I do it paint etc etc) so moving to connect with someone so very far away yet so very we all are.....and that is a primary quest of mine to see it feel it contribute to it and live it that which is in all of us but seems to tickle the mind of the poet I think I am not alone in expressing that the poet has been knocking at my door for a long time but life got in the way and now i have time to question if there were some words I was put here to say you too////

    dear poet! just read your random ideas in your worthy profile n found a mind heated with fertile's wonderful to read your prose, a rare juxtaposition of flow of ideas with flow of your pen...a bulk of your poetry offers a hard crust sometimes (admitting my own little knowledge here) ...demanding of you some delicate topics more..considered favorite by readers of all natures....try to avoid that doesn't suit you....prolific n promising you are...indeed! ...........Allah bless you...always n ever...

Best Poem of saadat tahir

High Flight….The Last Roll Over! (On Sad Demise Of Father)

”Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, -and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of-wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air....
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark nor even eagle flew-
And, while with silent lifting mind I've ...

Bygone Days

Often we stopped at the coffee shop
That from our school was just a hop

We lazed around till late in the day
Afternoon came and we sent away

We giggled at nerds within the class
oops the assembly, missed the mass
