As we’ve written before, it’s become customary at our Wine Pairing evenings to start the evening with a poem or two. We look for fun and light hearted poems.
For our Springfield Wine Pairing at the end of October, we used these two poems during the evening:
The Wisdom of Wine and Gin
My hair has receded and my belly grown fat
There’s hair growing in my ears and I don’t like that
My joints ache all the day and I have troubles with peeing
I’m tired all the time and have glasses for seeing
Gravity has taken over putting life in a downward spin
No wonder I enjoy drinking a little wine and gin
Harry-Elaine Cooking with Wine
My wife loves to cook with wine
when friends come around to dine.
sometimes when she’s in the mood
she puts some in the food.
