It is good to choose wine
After all Our Saviour enjoyed
The fruit of the vine in the
Fertile lowlands of Judaea;
His vintage would have been
Stored in huge earthenware
Amphorae which kept the wine
Cool in the scorching heat;
We buy wine in glass bottles
Which are not huge but offer
Enough for a jolly meal alone;
You can buy tiny little bottles
Containing one mouthful but
Where is the fun in that ?
Recently I discovered a
Marvellous French wine
From the perfumed gardens
Of Provence in the South
But today it has disappeared
From the shelves as if it had
Never existed
Tant pis... I still have
Three bottles left and I
Shall make them last
Santé !
