Poems of Sentiment: II. Life
Healthful Old Age
William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From “As You Like It,” Act II. Sc. 2.

  ADAM.—Let me be your servant;
Though I look old, yet am I strong and lusty:
For in my youth I never did apply
Hot and rebellious liquors in my blood;
Nor did not with unbashful forehead woo        5
The means of weakness and debility.
Therefore my age is as a lusty winter,
Frosty, but kindly: let me go with you;
I ’ll do the service of a younger man
In all your business and necessities.        10
