JH Sayyar's Sonnets

274
Alas! Ignorance: the darkest night of mind,
Love cannot stay in it, but hate dwelling place,
Sitting in the room, Satan teaches none to kind,
Envy and enmity on earth has no heavenly grace,
No heavenly face on earth like me so cute,
No soul that guides men on earth in rime,
No hand that writes truth in daily solitude,
No pen that writes deeds on the back of time,
These random thoughts give me more delight,
In the world of liar writing truth an heavenly art,
Then my pen and passions do make a flight,
Will and wishes are slain in trance of heart,

I do praise for myself not your praise in rime,
Verse remains forever, beauty decays with time
