A Glass Of Wine

Rating: 2.8

'What's in a glass of wine?'
There, set the glass where I can look within.
Now listen to me, friend, while I begin
And tell you what I see-
What I behold with my far-reaching eyes,
And what I know to be
Below the laughing bubbles that arise
Within this glass of wine.
There is a little spirit, night and day,
That cries one word, for ever and alway:

That single word is 'More!'

Another on of Ella's anti-alcohol poems, superbly and very, very sublimely written.
