JH Sayyar's Sonnets

I saw a lass standing on the white marble grave
Sullen eyes down to earth loaded falling with tears
Freezing on her rosy cheeks sitting near the grave!
Coming out of the grave countless ants with no fears
A full chilly day, fingers numb, trembling with cold,
Standing on her father’s tomb with sad heart alone,
Saying to her, ‘Go home, dark night chilly and cold,
None says, go with babe home’ weeping with moan!
None will say you, night is chilly and cold, go home
I saw this ruth full sight standing from fifteen feet,
A cute girl with a cute babe bent to her father comb
At the end she said, ‘We shall both in heaven meet,”

Death is nothing but shift of soul from earth to heaven,
All holy hearts, happy but all unholy in sexes and seven
