Life Remains Elusive
Life's path leads to mountains,
And around the bend,
And into deep valleys—
Never seeming to end.
Such ever-elusive phenomenon
Far-exceeds the grip;
Think you've got it by the horns,
But, somehow, it slips.
And yet some would share
It's beauty and its joy—
Tapping treasured resources
That are somewhat coy.
But beyond comprehension,
Or the ability to describe,
Life's elusive—even for
Poet, philosopher and scribe.
