sláinte

barkeep –
give me another glass
of wine  please
filled with joy
filled with sorrow

yet another  please
filled with life
brimming with love

still one more please
with friendship made
mixed with stirrings
of passion and the end
of ill feelings

barkeep –
be so kind as to give me
another glass topped up
that I may go
happily toasting
for all eternity
