The Art Of Living - Poem by Venkateswaran Krishnan Sreenivasan

Old in years, young at heart
To stay healthy is a living art
For those who are not, it is wise to start
A fitness regime of a class apart

Walk a mile and keep the smile
Is the motto for old to live in style
For physical and mental strength to keep
For well being and restful sleep

Smoking and drinking are taboo
Forgo these vices sans much ado
They lick the brain and bite the heart
Evil habits are hard to halt

Eat right and light early in the night
Do not jump into your bed after dinner straight
Walk for ten minutes at your pace and wait
Till you are ready to say good night

Socializing is a welcome trait
To share your life with those in need
To help, give, guide and educate
And reach out for the poor to feed
