I love a word with no known
Origin, a curt

That ends with the first
Evidenced use of the word
Meaning what it means.

Maze is such a word,
Its pre-English roots a guess.
A word useful and common
With a real-world referent

And no philological
Lineage is rare. A maze
We know. We may never know
The beginning of the maze.
