Warm and inviting

Like a summers eve

Swirling with clouds

Intoxicating relief

The essence of simplicity

Unaltered by time

The same now as always

And forever sublime

For days weary soul

A heady mix

Savoured in moments

Those glorious sips

Never just liquid

An experience in itself

Aromas and taste

All of them felt

Flowing from crystal

Or surrounded by glass

Bathed in the sun

Or candle light cast

Raised in salute

Indulge as you wish

An epic toast

Life lived for this
