SUMMER GARDENS OF KASHMIR
But see ! The rising moon of Heavn again
Looks for us, Sweetheart, through the quivering plane;
How oft, hereafter, rising will she look Among those leaves-for one of us in vain.
LEAVING Srinagar by the Jammu route, the old way was by boat up stream to Islamabad. A whole series of ruined gardens lies scattered throughout its length. In most cases they mark the site of royal camping-grounds, built for the convenience of the Court on the journey to and from the plains; while other gardens, like the ruins at Bawan, which lie off the direct route, were centred round a holy spring.
