The eyes that behold her visage 

Often do I fall into oblivion,
when my beloved appears
in her fairy beauty so radiant.

Her tantalizing beauty is so divine
no words can explain her beauty
and no eyes can define her serenity
 with prayers I always confront her beauty.

When gazing from a near distance,
defeats she the most blushing eyes
and the sunshine itself kneels down
before her steps to be graced
by her glowing countenance.

Her beauty is the hearsay of the town,
no one else can trim to defeat her visage
even the flocks of angels themselves
from above appear to be gazing at her.

When she falls in stillness along with me,
her beauty intoxicates my entire being
and her aromatic aura graces me
with a fresh and enlivened feeling.

Neither her seeker am I alone
nor is the town the only caravan,
the whole beings are in battle within
with longing seeking her to crown.

These words do I utter on her beauty
are all mine may seem an exaggeration,
yet the majestic sun itself glistens at her
with heavenly glow and wistful intuition.

The rainbow arches above after a heavy race,
the clouds displaying her enchanting visage after every rain in every weather with no cease.

My beloved’s beauteous countenance is so alive,
enlivens she every soul – seeking her in this hive.
