Day 19 - Menopause

With thanks to William Shakespeare's 'Seven ages of man'

The stage is set -
That stage at which life
Begins to turn around
And head back to the start.
The 'seven ages' ring
Another age's start,
The fourth, perhaps -
The soldier's sudden temper,
Not quite the justice's
Fifth age comfort.
Yes, the fourth age,
The centre point,
The middle age is right.
Youth's hormonal rush
Begins its full reverse,
As our youths rush on
Into life's rich promise.
