Stuff of Poetry
by John Stevens

Goats and grapes on a ten acre farm.
They both get squeezed with little harm.

One lets out milk, the other a small whine.
The milk for the “kids”, the wine is MINE.

So there you have Heather’s life today.
Poetry, goats and grapes, what can I say?

Children…. is a given.

    What an utterly charming write John! I adore the contrast between the giving from the grapes and the goats…….super! A lovely picture painted in this finely penned poetic gem, John! Truly a most delightful inking! Thank you for sharing, John.

    Part of it is from an old joke about what did the grape say when it got stepped in. It let out a little whine. Thanks for your words Mari.

    Poetry produced in a vineyard and farm. An enviable life!

    Thanks Frederick for reading. It has been six month and it slipped my mind. Yes. It is something I could get used to.

    Thanks Lily. I don’t know the reference to Farmville. Amazing… two people read this about the same time.
