A Barrel of Ruby Red Wine


Did you ever see a barrel of wine
With the ruby red liquid trickling down?
Just the thought of the delicious taste
Brings a smile instead of a frown

This wonderful wine is stored carefully
You can almost taste it on your tongue
It’s really tremendously exciting
To see what sweet grapes have become

But if you’ve made another choice
Well, sometimes it’s kind of hard
But now you know and can plainly see
It’s a treasure right from a vineyard!

    Nice poem Marilyn: There is nothing worse than a wino's hangover, but alas I quit drinking at least five years ago. Stomach problems, and Gerd or heartburn, can make drinking a miserable bed fellow dont ya know. I used to like red wine. God bless us all-MJG. (Report) Reply

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
