A Cup Of Wine - Poem by shimon weinroth

with a cup of wine
come dine with me,
on thoughts of mine,

Bacchinal or Dionysus
or more sedate,
wine, aged for time of taste

tickles the palate,
tittilates the mind,
sip from the well of memory

ritual and ceremony,
serious and light,
wine from her vines

arouse the senses
cloud the issues
brighten the spirits

raise a cup of wine
for old lang syne

    A lover of wine perhaps. But not a writing to be treasured as readable. One
    rather to be passed over.
