|Thirty-six sets out
on her career|
Halftime, with her baby on her mind.
If women are emancipated, still,
Remaining issues wait upon the will,
That tends to track the turmoil of its kind,
Yearnings that can sing and soar and
So must she balance melodies
Interior harmonies, by love designed,
X-rays of a heart that one can hear.
