I’m healthy but I need to take more care
with how I eat and drink and move around.
I’m better now, inhaling only air,
but three score thirteen years have brought profound
adjustments. Overall, my body’s sound,
but healing slows and appetites as well.
A breeze can almost bruise, but I’m not downed –
I think I’ve time before they toll my bell.
