You age, you tenderly mellow
Sipping, I gently bellow
You keep me warm
You are my charm
Glowing in light
Like a knight
*As a part of NaPoWriMo. #11
*The prompt by 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.”
*Also, do visit my friends who are participating in the challenge. You won’t be disappointed.

  1. These NaPoWriMo prompts are so creative and interesting 🙂 I look forward to reading your blog everyday to see what the prompt is and how you have executed it! 🙂 All the poems are individually really good and do complete justice to the prompts.
