JH Sayyar's Sonnets

379
In the flame of your youth O Rose my life burns,
My life pleasures melt bit by bit like a wax drop,
My woe taking new life in the candle pit discerns
Woes take different shapes as on the earth crop
Love comes on earth sitting in the woman’s heart,
Women know love deceit in love since her crawl
Both on earth draw women’s deceitful love cart
Love peeps through the eyes, tongue exposes brawl,
My Lady learns deceit from the mountain crow
Deceiving maiden’s being a manufacturing defect,
Live in eyes, hate in heart, anger sits on the brow,
A few know on earth who know women’s eyes tact

Women’s love on earth cannot make men sure great,
Those who claim knowing women well exaggerate
