Exercise is Good for You

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!
