I walk slow

as if it is too cold to walk

It’s only autumn

no icicles are hanging yet from tree branches

with stiff knees I struggle

to gain only a short distance

as if crawling

I’m not too old either

Agility is not a property of the young

I’m too young and ashamed

to realize I’ve grown old.
