I Miss The Indian Sweets.

Poetry By: Poetlife

I miss the Indian sweets of youth, I can make some, not allowed to have them any more. Doctors orders you see,
You would love them as I do, if you have a sweet tooth too.
The textures, juicy bites, colours, smells, to delight eyes, hearts, and mouth. Rose water some are soaked in,fried crisp then soaked in sweet syrup some you will find, and Halwa's of a different kind.
(If some one knows the corrects spelling of some sweets please correct me.

I Miss The Indian Sweets.(Sweetmeats/ deserts.)

(c)31/3/2013. By Poetlife.

Sweet shops all in a row,

Chowringee- Calcutta I go.

Jalebi, Gulab Jamun, Rasgullas,Halva's and more.

Jalebi's hot crisp and sweet ooze syrup as you eat.

Rusgulla's- my favourite are,

Sweet balls of sin

Made of milk and spices,

Float in syrup ,

Called "squeeky balls,"

As the sound they make when you bite in.

Delight the eyes, mind, mouth, heart,

If you have a sweet tooth like me.

Smells, colours, textures

Within your sight

These juicy bites

Fill the mouth and heart.

Heaven for a sweet tooth.

Halva's of different kinds

Cut into diamond shapes,

Many you will find.

Wear gowns of silver paper,

You can eat.

Oh! such a treat.

Tiny beads of sweet,

Yellow, delicate flavour,

Formed into golf sized balls

Dissolve in the mouth.

Ludoos they are called..

Creamy pale cream colour,


In diamond shapes

Dressed with green

Nuts on their face,

In delightful textures


I can make some of these.

My mouth waters.

Heart yearns for them still,

Many in Rose- water

You will find still.

Try some

If you find them,

Let me know,

I will be so

Envious of you.
