For Poets United ~ Poetry Pantry 197 ~ Roadside Royal Sale ~

On seeing this roadside carpet sale point in the capital city Islamabad

O'Thou Persian Attraction
patterned  in chain and bands
manifest in threaded culmination
colors from Arab and Spanish sands
immersed in royalty grand 

who has made thee O' Zilu'
what fingers hands and mind
what magic fills the twisted wool
O' Thou of Qaliche' or Gelim kind
seeing thou here? a great find'

whither palaces castles flying rugs
lamps that called the genii to serve
thieves rogues merchants or thugs
nothing but carpets' a must preserve'
who is best to this art'  deserve?
