Thirty-five has reason to remember
How lovely was the life now left behind.
Indeed, though young, no longer in one's youth,
Recalling days awash in golden ruth,
There is much beauty in this summer wind,
Yearning far more simply than September.

For all, time is like music on the mind,
Insidiously bringing one to truth,
Vivid in the vastness of its wonder
Even as one is oneself the singer.
