SOUL AND BODY
Since times antique the mind of man
In complex problems is involved
What is the source of clay-born man
And how the soul has been evolved?
Pain, anguish, glee and rapture sweet
Are spiritual states that man must face
What is of much worth, cup or wine,
Is knotty point you wish to trace?
What binds the words and their import,
What links the body and the soul?
It wears the cloak of its own ash
Just like the burnt refuse of coal.
