Shah Jahan's Dagger
by Rani Turton
Bookmark and Share
  This, the Emperor's personal dagger
A wonder in itself
Made for him in his 39th year
Sold for gold
But worth much much more
This khanjar has travelled far
From the Yamuna and all that it holds
The splendor of that tomb
A poem in stone
Where the Emperor's was added
Almost like an afterthought.

Prince Khurram, if you have any tears left,
Weep.
