All clean, perfumed, and well groomed on Eid day
To join in a divine celebration
That’s rooted in divine revelation.
Well dressed families parade out to pray.
Bangles jingle, all mingle and kids play.
The air is filled with joy and elation;
Surrounded by good food and vibrations
Of love and hospitality this day.
Eid is a day to forget all sorrows,
To rejoice and wear a smile on your face.
New hajjis swim in eudaemonia,
Returning to a welcome for heros,
Pure in spirit and radiant in grace!
What lights! What heights! What grand euphoria!
