All English Sonnets
HE GOES ON
Man’s heart is fickle and it shows
In gesture, action, thought and everything.
His loving for all longed for things outgrows
When within reach such longing bring such fate
This transitoriness; all the sages knew
Of worldly hopes. And hence dwelt in Him,
Who all the time does live with me and you
And vanishes every prejudice and whim
Of this and that; of fickle love and lie?
And thus creates such a selfless tribe
He turns them into sages by and by
No tongue can tell this better-describe.
The hopeless hopes, men set their hearts upon
All vanish, only He Himself goes on.
