brix of time

06/24/2009

between the rows of the vines
we walk ’til harvest time
fertilize, water, prune and tend
the fruit will ripen crimson hues
in your cheeks and my own
growing sweeter as it matures
then offering us great wine
so our love will flower
and then ferment to fortify our lives
when it seems something
has grown amiss with our tender fruits
a touch of Botrytis only amplifies
the sweetness in its brix
