merlot grapes ripen
dark blue berries row on row -
pickers work the vines

merlot grapes ripen
dark blue berries row on row -
blackbirds are startled

merlot grapes ripen
dark blue berries row on row -
a toast to good friends

"Welcome to our hearts and our home. 
May you never be out of the one nor long absent from the other".
