A Song of Life

How darkly fair this fleeting life
With many a puzzling bend,
By facing terrors of countless strifes
We voyage towards its end.

We know not where the tough road goes,
Or what future doth wait;
But moving ahead amidst all woes
Is the concealed voice of fate.

And hearts that seem like silken rose
In this eternal way,
Strangely turn in foreign foes
With each concluding day.

And only when those days are bright
With many a blended tone,
Divine it seems each dreary night,
Each substantial stone.

And fair then seems this mortal birth
Beneath the firmament,
And heart’s beloved this mystic earth
With all its citric scents.

And then arouses human heart
To weave silvery rhymes,
And dupe his kindred through his art
In sands of fleeting time.

But soon when the sparkle wanes
With charm slumbered in rust,
Into ashes turn the rhythmic rain
And blends with grimy dust.

And songs that once with soothing showers
Did bloom the pleasant whiles,
Now sadly part like withered flowers
And sail a thousand miles.

And then we come to know that life
Is beyond these fancy lines,
And many a skirmish, many a strife
Do make it soar and shine.

And life in not for hearts of night
That dream but dreams are gone,
But they who conquer secret hights
With every pristine dawn.
