Sunflower - Poem by Naveed Khalid

Of halcyon-days, but to remember thee,
Our Lord in manger of mandrake roots;
Mother-earth beside, in cowslip her part'd hair;
A horse-on-saddle still hung aloft the night-sky;
His bed stole looks from e'ery corner of the world,
Of blushed roses, for beauty's sake a belat'd sight:
Behold! love's fair face in summer's fairest brows;
That in Hades of a star, thy unweird eyen, less used to flow;
And that upstart crow's quill of ethereal wings,
Oft cheek to cheek conspires against the sun,
What in a canker dwells by thy arrow,
All too well is writ in book of numbers.
