Thirty-four does well in paradise,
Having learned the knack of little need.
Infinity is quite enough to own,
Remnant of a once and future home,
The flower of which the soul is but the seed.
Yet there are times no glory will suffice.

Fear not what vagrant fortune has decreed.
Only the minor details are unknown.
Ultimately, time to grace will lead,
Revelation packed in melting ice.
