i often fantasize how a particular poet or author would approach wine writing. for some strange reason, today, i wondered how the poet ee cummings would re-write this wine review. if you aren't familiar with cummings, take a peek at some of his work.
with apologies to cummings and his fans:
"viognier and chardonnay aka ginny and shar"
viognier and chardonnay aka ginny and shar
slid into the barrel (to be close; not far)
and they became gold that shimmered
so bright in the glass, and
the two subtly scented
as orange, apricot, honey;
and ginny was mellowed
by shar, barrel insides; and
the wine swirled 'round the mouth
tastes as peach, way down south
for whatever the food (as in thai or chinese)
ginny and shar are made for to please
