"the maze of life"
If endless aren't the days of life
when might I muster the praise of life?
while in its midst feeling lost & dazed
what mind can fathom the ways of life?
those few who've grasped the elusive pearl
alone have burned through the haze of life!
the mass like me who are worse than fools
long sit dumbstruck as we gaze at life!
now what accounts for how Raphael
intones his pain while he plays at life?
look Raphael! what peculiar grace
must tug your soul through the maze of life!
