SECTION – A (Reading)

1 . Read the following poem carefully. 4

Ode to Peace

Peace…….. Peace………….. Peace………….

O Peace! Where are you? Where are you?

O Peace! You are the guardian who learns to guard the good.

You are not the soup of Chicken cooked in Olive oil

Which is served at the Geopolitical conferences.

O Peace! You are the chlorophyll of spiritual flights.

O Peace! You are not a symbol and a word……..

You are a sharp shiny signal of a bare night seeking tranquility.

You are omnipotent and powerful exposition of forgiveness.

O Peace! You are the giver of new life to sordid Soul.

Where are you? Where can I meet you?

O Peace! You are neither an oppressor nor an oppressed heart.

If I meet you, I’ll keep you chained

Lest you’ll fly away

O Peace! Take me in your arms

And envelope me with your immortal wings.

O Peace! Unfurl your sails before the storm of war.

You are not the antonym of War

But the synonym of all virtues

A combination of Love and Liberty

Plus Justice and Security.

O Peace! You do not only reconcile between enemies.

But strengthen affectionate relations among friends

O Peace! You are the main lesson of holy Prophets.

For you we can have blissful co-existence.

O Peace! Come with your conch-shells sounding,

Dress me with a crimson mantle, grasp my hands and take me,

O Peace! I’m here to carry your banner.

O Peace! Where are you? Where can I meet you?
