Forty-one is filled with precious longing,
Overcome by sea and earth and sky.
Reason sees no reason for such yearning,
Though the heart knows well the reason why.
Years like fantasies flow swiftly by.

Only in that inner, restless burning,
Need like waves receding and returning,
Eloquent and spare, is the reply.
