1. The Cappuccino of Life

By.Bindiya Hassaram Vaswani

Life is like sipping a cup of cappucino,
Causing your stream of thought to flow
Bitter or sweet, strong or mild
Life's journey can be tame or wild.

Frothy or creamy, regular or decaffeinated
Life's a self-portrait which we have painted.
Regard your cappucino as an ordinary or unusual treat,
Brewed to rise beyound any cast or creed.

Chocolate or cinnamon sprinkled, it's your voice,
Truth or lies, they all come with a price.
Original or flavored, hot or iced,
For these are all the spices of life.

2. Sindhi Woman
By: John Stallworthy

Barefoot through the bazzar,
And with the same undulant grace
As the cloth blown back from her face,
She glides with a stone jar
High on her head
And not a ripple in her tread.

Watching her cross-erect
Stones, garbage, excement, and crumbs
Of glass in the Karachi slums,
I , with my stoop, reflect
They stand most straight
Who learn to walk beneath a weight.

3. How Do I Love Thee?
By: Elizabeth Barret Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feelng out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quite need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, -I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

I will pharaprase this poem, one by one. But, the article will publish after the day of test. Okay. 

Thank you so much. ^^
