The Wine Door

Here you go, now! Here it is!

Just hush and grasp it fast.

A peeking glance, a wink and nod

before the next is past.

I only see a portion

though trust I hold to true,

I promise you will savour this

and mark now what I do.

Divine nectar I bestow

if willing you partake,

a simple deal between us friends

is never a mistake.

Don’t forget to come again,

and celebrate with me.

Our toasting will be richly blessed

though wine door tiny be.
