One Single Impression: Empty


Merlot is my comfort
I shall not want
Though I am old and blue
There when I need

My glass is near empty
I shall not want
For sure there is some more
Where that came from

My thoughts once bad dissolve
Night's fright is calmed
A friend may come to call
None ever writes

And if our bottle's dry
We shall not want
For sure there are some more
Where this came from

I am still on the road (first Quebec City, Canada, now Montreal) doing holiday time. I won't have much time to answer your comments until later this week but I do really appreciate them and in knowing you came.

I love the way you use the bottle to represent your meaning in this.

A Merlot can be a good friend (for a little while anyway.)

I like this clever and fun poem...your style reminds me of a proverb or spiritual verse.
