Fast and Crisp no more

When I hear young women talking rapidly with lilt and grace, enunciating each syllable and consonant distinctly, I realize that I could no longer spin out words in the same way without practice and effort even when I have much to say in a hurry; I did with such ease at one time, nonetheless, and I am reminded that I am old. For that matter, I can no longer skip and hop sprightly any more as I once did, either, though I try, nor, alas, think nimbly, not as I used to.
