Fifty-two is mistress of her morning:
In wisdom and in power at the full;
For she is now the ruling generation,
Tested in the white-hot crucible.
Yet her heart is haunted by the evening.

There is in her, still fresh, the first creation.
Wonder is perpetually dawning
On inner landscapes, rich and beautiful.
