  • Hi, Elnara.

    Since no one of the native speakers answered yet on your question, I will try it as well as possible although I am not a native English.

    Lissome and agile are related terms for mobility, but there is a small difference.

    I would say that the adjective lissome describes the type of movement, agile the ability to move.
    Lissome is related to lithe; quick and graceful in movement.
    Agile is related to having the faculty of quick motion in the limbs; apt or ready to move; nimble; active.

    For example.:
    The old couple danced with lissome movements, and I was amazed by how agile they still were at their age.

    That means I was amazed by their graceful movements and how they were able to move so quickly with their limbs even though they were of old age.

    • Thank you very much!

    • Oi there, folks

        In my feelings, "lissome" also incorporates the quality of being captivatingly slender, and of course, with gracefull and nimble movements - not only limb, but the whole bodyl, like a delightfully slender belly dance girl....hmmmmm... i wouldn't dare include a macho into that belly dance issue, no mater how beautifully slender he was to be, caramba! ;-)
