JH Sayyar's Sonnets

372
When roses bloom in the garden and green valleys,
When cuckoos and nightingales sing in the tress,
Full moon shines in the sky to love heat to increase,
In men and women, birds and beats and in all seas,
The season of love starts with the wake of spring,
Sleeping wishes awake in men and women at last,
Beauties roam on the earth flying with beetle wing,
Yea! In search of new loves forgetting the bitter past,
My mistress’ busy sleeping spring comes and goes,
Like dormouse in the darkest den all day and night,
My poor love curse her looking at her sleeping pose,
Lessening my love desires and my mighty pen might.

My mistress, awake from the sleep death a long sleep,
Those who sleep all day, on their poor lucks do weep
