JH Sayyar's Sonnets

467
Matter stirs the passions of mind, evil or good
Three kinds of passions awake in human mind
Intellectual, rational and sensational in soul wood
Sometime cruel passions awake the soul to grind
These trend settlers on earth all men’s in bust life
And all men work according to irascible passion
And the concupiscible passions both create strife
In the center of soul then lustful mind possession
Ah from these spring hatred, love, horror and joys
Grief, hope, despair, boldness, horror and fear
Some injurious to the mind, some the soul’s toys
These the dresses of soul few know how to wear

When souls happy in human body surely release
Love rays on the world all negative rays to cease
