Music: B Minor Mass, Credo.
|Forty-six pauses just a little,
Opening a window to her dreams.
Renewal is more certain than it seems,
The wordless answer to the wordless riddle,
Yielding yearning that the soul redeems.
So is she ever young, though at life's middle,
Immersed in obligation, lost in means,
Xerox of the light that homeward streams.
