In poetry:

What part of the dread eternity
Are those strange minutes that I gain,
Mazed with the doubt of love and pain,
When I thy delicate face may see,
A little while before farewell?

Inspire my erring heart to sing thy praise,
That when the last dread hour approaches near,
No friend may blush, while dropping memory's tear.

Of the thought that in them lies,
Have you seen them, as she raises
Them in gladness or surprise,--
Two gray gleams of daybreak skies,--
Helen's eyes?

Do these sorrows die out with our breath?
Will they pass from our souls like a nightmare," I said,

Perchance a lurking breeze
Springs, just awakened to its wayward play,
Tossing the sober trees
Into a frolic maze of ecstasies,
And snatching at the gay
Banners of Autumn, strews them where it please.

Since Pollio sought this lonely shade,
Admired this rural maze:
The noblest breast that Virtue fires,
The Graces love, the Muse inspires,
Might pant for Pollio's praise.

In science:

Simple methods to generate mazes using Random Walks are discussed along with related issues and it is explained how to interpret mazes as graphs and loops as shortcuts.
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
In this paper we study the properties of two dimensional complex mazes from the point of view of the SW theory.
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
To generate a specific maze we fix the number N of steps of the non-reversing RW and the probability p ∈ [0, 2/3].
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
That is, while pN -the average number of turnings- is less than one there are no shortcuts in the maze and the value of N matches L.
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
When x > 1 the presence of shortcuts has an impact and the distance L is reduced following a power-law with an exponent value α equal to 2/3 when the size of the maze is increase.
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
F2 (x) may be interpreted as the reduction factor in the start-end maze distance as a function of the size and the turning rate on the system given by p.
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
For instance, the steps along any game or maze is but a sample of a much larger network of possibilies.
