JH Sayyar's Sonnets

447
When I look at the beauty of the whole earthly things
I wonder how all beauties cruel tine and space devour
How time burns all on earth by its unseen magic stings
And space folds all matters but men think never, never
The eyes that discover beauties reflect its power grace
The rays of the beauties stir the sleeping eyes’ powers
But a few eyes are on the earth that eternal beauty trace
Face beauty, devoured by time, look at the cute flowers
I have seen no eternal beauty in women’s weak frame
Eyes full of deceit, tongue full of lies, heart never true
Women’s beauty like beasts how can the lovers tame
When time steals beauty leaving behind wail and woe

Honesty; eternal beauty, never fading even after gloom
It kindles trust in God that shines in the darkest room
