The Senescent Frame

The aging agents in our frame,
chemistry that alters with the years,
may each have properties and names,
their reversal would bring cheers.

They come in bottles, buildings, books,
use it, not lose it, walk and gym.
bicycle paths through woodsy nooks,
adherents maintain and grow trim.

Though aging agents wear the frame,
it's not required they wear the soul,
the body's health a worthwhile aim
when joined with spirit to be whole.

We'll study to promote good health;
let age be spiced with purpose, mirth.
And more than our material wealth,
our days fulfilled while here on earth.
