Fine Wine – A Quadrille

Fine Wine

Rich dark soil
of the rolling hills
gave birth to ancient vines 
Blessed by priests in spring
for a bountiful
harvest time
 
Forever at the mercy
of fickle elements 
Let us pray for clusters
of plump fruit
For the making of
our fine wine

    You’ve captured the rich earthiness of soil and wine in this quadrille, Christine, and painted a lovely landscape too.
