Almost Praying.

There it sits before me

Just waiting for my attention,

I look at it with such respect

And such hope

Almost praying to it

That all will be fine

When I remove the cork

And pour my first Rioja

Into the wineglass.

      Thank you yellowrose. Rioja is a Spanish wine and my favourite wine.

      Then you said another prayer, hoping I don't turn up with water?! lol.

        Never much for wine but a huge Deano fan.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you John.

          Yes I like Deano as well.
