Eyes know none of the truth of heart


Her flitting form I saw when last evening,
My eyes captivated were by the art
That was her beauty, drawn a pale painting
On to mind’s canvas as stray parts sans heart,
And framed as-is-where-is, loosely defined—
Portrait captured by camera-like eyes,
Perspective passioned by a biased mind;
Yet, etched within a true image there lies.

We know how good a painter poor eyes be,
How fair a fleeting form the mind can keep:
Know, no painter paints better than can see,
No mind retains any better than reap,
Mind’s eyes enamoured get by painted art,
Knowing none of the truth captured by heart! _______________________________________________
‘Pitfalls of human eyes’ is the theme of this
sonnet. Eyes paint no better than they see;
see only what they want to see. But heart sees
what the eyes can’t.

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
