JH Sayyar's Sonnets

276
When you look cuter, do ask your glass
What will you do O Lady when will steal,
Your youth and old days come across,
Standing before you sitting with no deal,
Sow goodness seed in youth with pleasure,
And reap its golden fruit in age of pain,
Your will, will fail, if you think in leisure,
Pleasure not but grief some again and again.
When your beauties decay, but you in rime,
Will live like a bright comet when I am gone,
Which is mighty, pen or beauty proves time?
Yea! I compare you with laughter not moan

Nothing can stay on earth except goodness for all,
Increasing knowledge day by day ignorance fall
