JH Sayyar's sonnets

333
When I do see rose blooming in my lovely lawn,
Attractive like Lady’s eyes fluttering in spring air,
Butterflies hanging over the roses in eve and dawn,
I do watch day and night beetle-rose love affair,
Like rose beauty my Lady’s love dims very soon,
Its petals like my mistress’ cheeks, morning grace,
Shining like the sunny morn, but the evening ruin,
Parts fall down like Ozymandias, love has no base,
Like rose my mistress’ love withers with cruel age,
Sooner more than flowers die within sullen days,
My heart falls in love while my wisdom presage
Taken away my love from me my Lady’s praise

O Rose! Your love dislike flower very, very soon,
Like mermaid standing on the lone shore I croon
