A Poem: Love You From Afar

Letter to the Editor

This is a parody of “A Drinking Song” by William Butler Yeats

Wine comes in at the mouth

And love comes in at the eye;

That’s all we shall know for truth

Before we grow old and die.

I lift the glass to my mouth,

I look at you, and I sigh.”

Good jokes come in at the ear

Enjoyed over a beer

I toast you in the morn

You look at me with scorn

I love you from afar

Perhaps the corner bar

MD Marshall, May 2016...
