JH Sayyar's Sonnets

O my Love, when my sweet love and red lily,
When be weather fine sitting near the beach,
Yea! I try to catch her but beyond my reach,
I daily try the weather dreary the night chilly,
It comes to me but the jealous frisking waves,
Take it away from me, why? I know it not,
But troubles daily sitting there idle I have got,
Because kissing red, red lily my heart craves,
Just like it I love you O Love more and more,
But the callous world, take you from me away,
From my holy sunken eyes, O Lady, true I say,
If you come, I shall not knock at any other door,

My dim shadow in your eyes and yours in mine,
Come O Lady come, let us make dull night fine
