A Wall of Bounty

Abe V Rotor

All's green over the living stone;
In summer sleeps, grows in the spring;
And Ceres and Bacchus would beacon
Madrigals dancing and singing.

Only once like this does live a fool -
Who cares the other side of the wall?
For if life be happy, so with the soul;
Drink and let the grapes fall.

Let light seep through the wall and window
To kiss the fruit, the brew and wine,
To pour out earth's bounty to flow
And touch the green thumb divine.~
