JH Sayyar's Sonnets

59
Cheat in love common you know it well,
You make new friends but must be wary,
And your secrets to others never to tell,
In listening and speaking Rose you chary.
Cheating in love as the canker to gall,
Lending in friendship is a self-treason,
Borrowers lick the dust listen to me pall,
I cannot read other’s false pretty vision.
I am loyal to you as water to the steep,
As a nightingale to rose follow my verse,
I am pious darling as the Jesus’ sheep,
Catching my words keep in your purse.

Without smell flower as a body without soul,
To trace the finest love in the world my goal.
