JH Sayyar's Sonnets

345
When wisdom opens eyes all things may be seen,
Of the four Elements: Water, Earth, Air and Fire,
All hidden treasures and what is on earth green?
Human wisdom never leaves men in worldly mire,
When wisdom closes its eyes anon closes the door,
Of human heart and mind then all the senses fail,
Black veil prevails on mind as locusts on the shore
When angels leave the body, Satan sits and hail
Wisdom; gift of Adam on earth, emotion; gift of Eve,
Courage; Adam’s heart, Greed Eve’s nature part,
Women preserve earth and Adam does not perceive,
Looking at the Eve’s beauty turns turtle wisdom cart

When woman talks with red, red lips in love with lover,
Her beauty faults in fine way, her beauty box does cover
