Subscribing, I have recently annexed
a catalog of resources to use
to slow decrepitude. Without pretext
I’m exercising ligaments and thews
before another effort, till I’m flexed
by gentle pose and stretch. I don’t abuse
the corpus like I did so many years.
This resolution’s working, it appears.

(Ottava Rima)
