JH Sayyar's Sonnets

434
Your cunning eyes and your rosy cheeks me teach,
How to praise eternal beauty in impressive rimes,
Brings immortal conceptions for my pen to preach,
Among the whole unskilled writers of modern times
My Muse never forgets brave ladies and brave knights,
Who reformed all moral evils on earth just for paradise?
Defeated the monsters of evils in thousands of fights
I listen still to my Muse, all innocent hue and cries
Beauty God’s perfect skill, why on earth evil spreading,
In past and modern times, beauty was misunderstood,
Men misuse God’s craftsmanship, in history heading,
Murder and destruction of stone, steel, iron and wood

When I think of your beauty I recall God’s perfect skill,
Among all the creatures on earth, men is imperfect still
