In Her Fifties

In her fifties,
A woman’s chest
Carries the peaches of childhood,
The Butter of the youth,
And the olives of old age

In her fifties,
A woman’s heart
Carries the spontaneous twenties,
The mad thirties,
The charming forties,
And the reputable sixties

In her fifties,
A woman’s fist
Carries the heat of thunderbolts,
The might of rocks,
And the tenderness of the universe
