Thirty-eight can navigate the tides,
Having long observed the moon within.
Incoming is the feast that one awaits,
Retreating as one's appetite abates,
The bounty shared by all who've ever been.
Years come and go; harmony abides.

Even when surrounded on all sides,
Instinct inundated by the din,
Given but a moment she relates
How things are to currents that begin
The hairpin turn that fearlessly she rides.
