|Music: Ach Elslein, liebes Elselein Mein.
By Ludwig Senfl.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark, at The Internet Renaissance Band.
|Thirty is abundant in its charms;
Happy, though much burdened by unease.
In adulthood there is hope but also fear
Regarding what may happen year to year,
The future too inscrutable to please.
Yet thirty holds sweet youth still in its arms.
