Rather ariid delight
Well, she is preferring temperance in joy taking as opposed to somehow overdoing it beyond your situation or position. Inappropriate volume or temperature or fullness of joy when the situation demands thoughtful consideration and attention instead. So it seems to me. Not a poet myself or an interpreter of poems, but that seems to be her message. Perhaps she is speaking from experience.
