Love And Wine By K Morris

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.
