JH Sayyar's Sonnets

447
Ah! When I look at the beauty of whole earthly things
I wonder how all beauties cruel tine and space devour
How time burns all on earth by its unseen magic stings
And space folds all matters but men think never, never
The yes that discover beauty reflects its own grace
The rays of beauty stir the sleeping eyes’ powers
But a few eyes are on earth that eternal beauty trace
Face beauty, devoured by time, look at the cute flowers
I have seen no eternal beauty in women’s weak frame
Eyes full of deceit, tongue full of lies, heart never true
Women’s beauty like wild beasts how can livers tame
When tome steals beauty leaving behind wail and woe

Honesty; eternal beauty, never fading even after gloom
It kindles trust in God that shines in the darkest room
