I skipped two days of morning exercise,
for Saturday I played at toddler stuff,
and Sunday’s when I like to rest my thighs
and calves. My aging body gets enough
on weekdays now – this year’s routine supplies
me, works my stamina, is nothing tough.
But when this morning I began to move,
I felt my plans and attitude improve.

(Ottava Rima)
