Fifty-six is well aware of winter,
Inklings of which permeate the fall.
For her the seasons warn us to remember
That time is still the master of us all.
Years give much ado, but little quarter.

So may she winter well, this little daughter,
Inside a shelter made for stormy weather,
Xeroxing the days she can't recall.
