JH Sayyar's Sonnets

247
Saucy youth knows not what she has done,
Shame and conscious voice bring action fruit,
Unfair thoughts put to action, do always shun,
But in old age our all actions in lone we hoot,
What is weakness? Our fault, and all evils, seed,
All make faults but women make like a child,
People do not accept it but it is my solid creed,
Women’s lust for pride, nature is more mild,
Lust controls women’s wit and freezes reason,
Greed lives in heart and jealousy sits on the nose,
Both greed and lust, both to women’s treason,
Good days bring joys, bad day brings sorrows,

Your beauty thief, robs my wary wit and thought,
Making friendship with you, death gallows brought
