JH Sayyar's Sonnets

251
The emotions about me you have I respect,
Owing to having same nature in all flesh frames,
But always passions control human reason a fact,
It plays in talking field with reason many games,
Sometimes reason deceives; a slave of passions,
Forgetting good or bad fruit provides points strong,
And nothing comes out of nothing in the sessions,
Blind reason curtails life, but reason does prolong,
Life for the blind useless, the sun diurnal role,
Reason a slave of passions, passions queen of wit,
I call women passions and men reason to control,
Passions women’s maid always with then does it,

Passions clouds eclipse, the reason sun and moon,
Reason day turns to night and evening into noon,
