Though more than four decades beyond his life's physical prime
Louis in his late seventies refuses to become a victim of time
For at least ten kilometers a day he jogs up and down
The undulating roadway just north of the town
His fastest pace nowadays compared to many younger men slow
But for his age than him any fitter or faster i cannot claim of to know
Even in his younger years not known as an athlete
He always jogged for enjoyment and not to compete
A grandfather ten times he lives with Jillian his wife
They have been together for fifty years of life
More than half of a century of jogging he has jogged every day
And though the years have left him looking wrinkled and gray
For one of his years he looks healthy, fit and well
And in time it does seems years from the farewell bell.
