A Drinking Song

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

Wine comes at mouth and Love comes in at the eye" Outstanding flight of imagery and equally outstanding style of expression.
I like it the poem
i think a lunch would bhe nice hank
A sestet With a rhyme scheme of ab ab ab. Nicely written.
WINE comes in at the mouth And loves comes in at the eye. Nice style.
