JH Sayyar's Sonnets

Ah! I saw a lass standing on the white marble grave
Sullen eyes down to earth loaded falling with tears
Freezing on her rosy cheeks sitting near tiny cave!
Coming out of it countless ants with no human fears
A full chilly day, fingers numb, trembling with cold,
Standing on her father’s tomb with sad heart all alone,
Saying to her, ‘Go home, dark night is chilly and cold,
None says me go with babe home’ weeping with moan!
Yes! Non will say you night is chilly and cold, go home
Ah! I saw this ruth full sight standing from fifteen feet,
A cute girl with a cute babe bent to her child to comb
At the end she said, ‘We shall both yes in heaven meet,

Death is nothing but transfer of soul from earth to heaven,
All holy hearts are happy but all unholy in sexes and seven
