The National Flower Of India

Updated on July 26, 2014

Veritable a Beauty, God sent,

To soothe our eyes with solace;

Wonderful a flower balmy fragrant,

Smelling the aroma around, fills us with happiness.

In varied shades betwixt pink and white,

You embellish Ponds and Lakes in floral hues;

Summer Sunshine is what you love to imbibe,

Having, on the Contrary, an aversion to Wintry dews.

Pristine Flower for fifteen million years,

You have been enjoying the ‘Lotus Effect’;

Your receptacle is a treasure trove of Yellow Sapphires,

Quite akin to a Wasp’s Hive for the 'Wasp Hunters' to inspect.

Incredulous to find such bonny in muck to grow,

Symbolising Purity, Serenity and Grace;

Even though floating on waters murky and shallow,

Your water repellent leaves are worthy of praise.

Nelumbo nucifera is your Scientific name,

While your sobriquet is Lotus;

May ‘God Bless Us’ to have an equal fame,

With qualities divine and smiles ostentatious.
