The below poem was inspired by Ernest Dowson’s “Cynara”, (http://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2011/mar/14/non-sum-qualis-cynarae-dowson). I am a huge Dowson admirer. He does, in my view deserve far greater recognition than is generally accorded to him.
Love And Wine By K Morris
The night is fine.
The women divine.
The wine is sweet.
Lovers embrace beneath the sheets.
The morning’s cold.
Good time girls count their gold.
Man contemplates his soul.
