feeble

Here is my best explanation:

'weak' is the definition.
('feeble' can be similar in meaning to 'weak')

'feel and be strangely' is the wordplay.
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'strangely' is an anagram indicator.
'feel'+'be'='feelbe'
'feelbe' with letters rearranged gives 'FEEBLE'.
