Poem: Villanelle – ” Health Habbits.”


A Villanelle

is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa.

The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last couplet (last two lines).

One of the most famous Villanelle is “Do not go Gentle into that Good Night” by Dylan Thomas.

I think it is time to change my habits.

To make better choices and decline extra helpings,

Maybe it’s time I eat as the rabbits.

—–

If I could exercise intensely for only seven minutes and be avid,

If I would back away from boxes of chocolates with a welp, 

 I could be fit  counting points and exercising,  and not grab sweets as a stealing bandit.

—–

It’s time for push-ups, crunches, jumping jacks, and lunges; all exercises of habit.

I cannot pretend I don’t understand the consequences of extra weight; I’m not a young whelp, 

Who can eat as she chooses; no more, being a sugar addict.

—–

It’s time to move forward into a new kind of fitness habit, 

It’s time to start my healthful journey with self help,

Weight watchers points; I’ll count cause I know I can be a health addict.

——

It’s a new world today for making good choice habits,

I’ll find a way to do yoga stretches even though the stretching makes me yelp,

I know in life there are so many health facets. 

We can achieve what we dream and try to be stronger; we can live in a year where our fitness goals happen.
