Some dawns may afford a chance to feel the world anew
some pirouettes in the dance reveal the world anew
the puzzle of our existence dangles from what thread?
the pressures of happenstance unreel the world anew
if you are a dark enigma what will light our way?
can joy hidden in your glance not heal the world anew?
you set us spinning uncertain which way's up or down!
while truing our course you yet unkeel the world anew!
so brisk is the play of time! so glib the luck of draw
no sooner we fold again you deal the world anew
I wanted to dive in poetry that mountain pool
to chill-out my mind and re-congeal the world anew
I said "where the raindrops turn to pearls I'll wend my way
I'll gather from fruitful chance what peels the world anew!"
I sought Raphael imploring him to share song's lore
he laughed at my young romance "you'd steal the world anew?"
