Glass Of Wine - Poem by James B. Earley

Romance sometimes
.....A fragile thing...
Perhaps...tenacious
...The spirit cling

For in the texture
....Lies the strength
Profound the structure
...The more intense

What logic of...
It all becomes
....Yet..mystical
It is....to some

....The powers of
That noble vine...
Romance...a legacy
...In the glass of wine

    En vino veritas (I've likely spelled it wrong...I'm not a Latin major! : -) Nicely done...although...wine doesn't always do the trick.

    Cheers, James! I like this simple hymn to wine very much. As an adoptive Californian, you are probably an expert on the romance of the vine, too! (Report) Reply

    From the urgent fumblings of pimpled youth to the leisurely cuddles of grey headed nomads, a glass of shiraz always provides a pleasing accompaniment to romantic encounters. What a charming poem! love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
