Incomparable Mountain

Incomparable Mountain :

Ours is the incomparable mountain,
Himalaya firm, eternal.
Ours the peerless river Ganga
Whose water sweet is holy.
Ours is the unequalled scripture,
The Upanishad ineffable.
Ours is this golden land, this Bharat,
Proudly, loudly let us praise it.
Here mighty heroes and great seers,
Narada’s music, wisdom perfect,
All glories auspicious flourished here.
Here overflowed Lord Buddha’s Grace.
Let us proudly sing the praises
Of this great, ancient land of ours.
Unafraid we shall face troubles
When they come. No more shall we
Lie in the dust in penury.
Never shall we for selfish gain
Perform mean tasks. Never shall we
Meet empty-handed the demand
Of our dear sacred motherland.
Abounding in milk, honey and rice
And fruits of every kind for ever.
Let us praise it. proudly, loudly.


The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.

Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
