JH Sayyar's Sonnets

310
My Lady’s beauty shines in all twinkling stars,
As carbuncle looks up in dark and dreary night,
Your cheeks glow in gloom as cannons in wars,
But for all the watchers, the sight full of delight,
When red, red lips and cheeks my eyes survey,
I see lilies, marigolds, iris and lovely tulips,
Fluttering in breeze, like my Fair’s eyes sway,
Like parrot eye but stronger is steel cage grip,
After toiling of day when I reach at my lodge,
I lay on my bed to rest but cannot take rest,
You live in my ruby eyes my being to dodge,
When I close my eyes your stay proves pest.

Love grows in heart and shines in women’s eyes,
Alas! But behind it dwells eternal sobs and sighs
