Is four o’clock too early
To pour the first glass of wine?
I have a nice Riesling
And crème de cassis
For the aperitif Kir
Which my father taught me how to make
I drink it often
In the early quiet of the evening
Before the traffic sounds intrude
After the day’s work
Perhaps it wouldn’t seem so odd
To pour the first glass of wine
At four o’clock
If there were someone here
To share it with
Or perhaps if there were someone
Here to share it with
I wouldn’t be pouring the first glass of wine
At four o’clock
