JH Sayyar's Sonnets

325
More sweet than Cupid my pretty mistress’ kiss,
Your soft red, red lips and cheeks glowing in dark,
Shining like ruby in dark your sunken breasts amiss,
Mars your being’s beauty and it is your being spark.
O Rose! Watch the pebbles striking against the shore,
Losing its being bit by bit, yea, all day and night,
Fitful your promises and make vows no more,
It mars the charm of life and increasing self plight,
O Lady, promise; men’s crown, and essence of soul,
It uplifts human grace in life that shines like star
It turns iron into gold but human lies like coal,
Breeds coal, not, but diamond among the coal, par,

O Lady, your eyes and silky cheeks but lips, liar,
And your all false promises leave lovers in mire
