Exercise is good for you

   In sunshine and in rain.

It helps to oil your rusty joints

   And lubricates the brain.


Exercise is good for you:

   It helps ward off the weight,

So walk or dance, skip or swim –

   You’ll soon start feeling great.


Exercise is good for you:

   It helps protect your heart:

So, on your feet and off we go

   It’s now we’ll make a start.


Exercise is good for me -

  At my age?  I’m not sure:

I used to dance upon my toes,

  But don’t dance any more.


I used to swim and ride my bike,

   And was always good at games,

But once my hair turned nicely white,

    And this seems such a shame -


It’s then I turned to poetry

   To exercise my brain.

Although searching for a rhyming word

   Can sometimes be a strain!
