The Winemakers

by Dorothy Walters

Original Language English

The winemakers claim
that only they
know how to brew,
that age itself
is the key
to the celestial drink.

But some of us
could not wait --
we got dead drunk
on the first sip.

-- from Some Kiss We Want: Poems Selected and New, by Dorothy Walters
