Thirty-four has found her inner home,
Happy in her own well-tended space,
Inviting friends to drop in on their way,
Relishing the doldrums of the day,
Taking pleasure in each moment's grace,
Yet as content in company as alone.

For one must have such comfort to embrace
Oneself, and put one's passions into play.
Ultimately one must, though one may roam,
Remain at last, perplexed or pleased, in place.
