Salubrious…..

I wish to bring to your attention
the lovely word 'salubrious',
I love the sound it makes
as it rolls right off my tongue.
By saying it out loud
it makes me sound gregarious,
a little bit Italian
and a whole lot of fun!

It makes me rather dubious,
or is it that I'm curious,
why we seldom ever hear
this special word today.
I would be disappointed
and perhaps a little furious
if salubrious expressions
were taken all away.

Salubrious means healthy
and is not at all injurious,
with pleasant connotations
which bring so much respect.
This word is real and honest
and never slightly spurious,
so for lively conversations
it's a word we can select!
