Fifty-one is entering the fall,
In which the colors of her life will brighten.
For her the painted world is but a wall
That shields a void no passion can enlighten.
Yet one can mime its mystery in all.

O season of remembrance! A shawl
Now covers the dark branches that will whiten,
Each laden with a dream none will recall.
