JH Sayyar's Sonnets

326
When my love leaves you, you will soon realize,
All alone your being, confined in the dreary cell,
With the withered face and in ears echoing cries,
Without my love O Rose your heart will be hell,
Yea! In your memory nest will be no love bird,
Just dried feathers and food in your love nest,
Sad your heart and gloomy your eyes absurd,
Cruel time will make flabby your coral breast,
I have locked your youth in my vision forever,
Your face will be never stale in my mature brain,
When your false love oath will your heart devour,
You recall my holy love in lone will be in vain

O Lady! Your blandishments after me none bears,
Thinking this O God my gleeful heart full of tears
