Abbottabad Poem by General Sir James Abbott KCB (12 March 1807 – 6 October 1896)

masa aku melawat abbottabad hari tuh, terperasan yang james abbott ni lah yang membuka abbottabad

tu la sebabnya nama town ni diberi nama sempena dengan nama dia abbot+abad. abad = place

aku suka dengan town abbottabad neh sebab dikelililingi dengan kehijauan

winter tahun 2007 siap salji turun lagi betul2 kat town

the late sir james abbott ada tulis poem pasal abbottabad kat bawah neh

source here ok

I remember the day when I first came here
And smelt the sweet Abbottabad air

The trees and ground covered with snow
Gave us indeed a brilliant white glow

To me place seemed like a dream
And far ran a lonesome stream

The wind hissed as if welcoming us
The pine swayed creating a lot of fuss

And the tiny cuckoo sang it away
A song very melodious and gay

I adored the place from the first sight
And was happy that my coming here was right

And eight good years here passed very soon
And we leave our perhaps on a sunny day

Oh! Abbottabad we are leaving you now
To your natural beauty do I bow

Perhaps your wind’s sound will never reach my ear
My gift for you is a tear

I bid you farewell with a heavy heart
Never from my mind will your memories thwart
