Feeling less than happy this morning
I got up and opened a fresh jug
Lifting my cup I thanked the wine gods
for this gift to chase away cares
a moment later I felt different
suddenly the whole world was fine
the gloom disappeared from the mountains
the warmth of the sky filled the river
at the town’s overgrown South Rampart
trees formed a canopy of leaves
the cool shade provided welcome relief
we heard fine words here last night
once we were drunk we stopped talking
we stretched out on sweet-smelling grass
the wealthiest men in the past
surely possessed nothing like this

Nice share. . .
Glad you like it.
Oh if you can afford just one. the Douro River with Scenic is the one. We did the 11 day so we were on the river for 10 nights and away from Porto for 7 days…Organic wine
Sounds like a good river cruise.
