Wine to Cheer the Heart

I remember my father loved a glass of beer

Most miners do

That gritty throat and all that dust

Beer refreshes you

So real ale was his tipple

And I enjoy it too

So when I do my shopping

It’s nice to get a brew


I heard a fellow one time

He was Jehovah’s witness

Spoke about his neighbour

As a man who ‘uses alcohol’

Well that’s one way of putting it

But I take another line

No I’m not using alcohol

I just like a glass of wine


And on this quiet Sunday

Not a sound or squeak

What shall I buy tomorrow?

As we begin another week

How about a bottle of wine

A wine of Sicily

I have it written down now

Feel better now already
