JH Sayyar's Sonnets

395
We all human living on earth and silvery land,
Earth’s womb consists of silver, metal and gold,
The Eve’s sons spreading on it like shining sand,
But human abilities none can into wisdom mould,
Some on earth are gold but some silver and metal,
Iron may be made here but not silver or argentine,
Metals into gold is turned with earth’s breath rattle,
When time and weather may together on earth dine,
Diamond shines like pearl among coals in dark pit,
Just like wisdom shines as the stars in blue sky,
Human eyes cannot see planets’ moving bit by bit,
Those who have wisdom listen to wisdom cry,

Foolish those who trace wisdom in written books,
Wisdom: a gift of God do find in the Angels’ looks
