Walking the vineyard
Early that morning
Wine fermented air
In the day dawning
A table waited
Laden with mounds
Of the deepest
There sparkled a diamond
Brighter than the dew
“My love,” you knelt smiling,
“I’ve a grape to pick with you.”
dVerse Poets Pub : Quadrille # 125 – In Praise of the Grape
Tonight at dVerse bar Linda serves us some wine to prompt our taste buds to verse the quadrille.
A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, not including the title. It must include the prompt word wine. Muse was in a silly mood.
National Poetry Month for 2021 Day 5
Ha! What a fun and wonderful last line!
A beautiful proposal! A beautiful poem!
Thank you, Carol.
Must be a very sweet wine that is being offered 😉 Excellent ending of the poem there.
I imagine it was. Thanks.
Oh I didn’t see that coming, but then again neither did she…or he! Love the way you told a love story in 44 words.
Thanks, Mish. I purposely left it gender vague, glad you caught that.
I bet walking an early morning orchard has the best fragrance ever. I love “mounds of the deepest sweet rounds” as the perfect place for that sparkling diamond, but I’m not sure if it is a stone or the holder of the stone who is the precious gem. Lovely poem, Raivenne.
Thank you, msjadeli!
A grape proposal, so romantic!
Yup. Thanks Kim.
Lovely rhyming piece and the ending made me smile 🙂
Here’s to sweeter than wine, here’s to you!
SO SO clever! I chuckled out loud at the ending. Well done!
I love this ~~~~~
