The prompt foe NaPoWriMo today was “Poets have been writing about love and wine, wine and love, since . . . well, since the time of Anacreon, a Greek poet who was rather partial to that subject matter. Anacreon developed a particular meter for his tipsy, lovey-dovey verse, but Anacreontics in English generally do away with meter-based constraints. Anacreontics might be described as a sort of high-falutin’ drinking song. So today I challenge you to write about wine-and-love. Of course, you may have no love of wine yourself, in which case you might try an anti-Anacreontic poem. Happy writing!” So basically we had to write a drinking song. Well here is my attempt, Sorry Vi its not about JD, couldnt come up with anything for that.
MY WINE LOVE
A formal Dinner, Or a party I go,
A sip is all that I want, you know,
Be it white or be it red,
At least a glass before bed,
I may even forget to dine,
Cant do without my precious wine.
