Twenty-six reserves the right to change,
Well aware the years are in her favor.
Even as her possibilities
Narrow to reflect her qualities,
The open space is something she can savor,
Young enough to range and rearrange.

Still, the touch of passing time is strange,
Interrogating sensibilities,
X-ing out unsuitable behavior.
