NaPoWriMo 11 – Wine List

The National Poetry Writing Month challenge for today is to write an Anacreontic poem about wine and love. The Anacreontic form is over twenty-five centuries old, and yet it is a new form for me.  But I am no stranger to the subject matter…so here goes!

Wine List

by Jan Brown

Magic potion, work of art
Cherished now for health, for heart
Full of phytonutrients
Lovely antioxidants
Something called reservatrol
Yes! Red wine sure has it all
Love’s delight, love’s elixir
My favorite mood lifter
Whether pinot noir, merlot
Or cabernet sauvignon
Whether fruity, dry or crisp
Vanilla notes or citrus
Tastes of heaven, sip by sip
Slithers past your ruby lip
Show me that  you love me–How?
Just hand me the wine list, now!
