Seasonal Drinking
by Ernest Hilbert

The Rieslings and mulled merlots
Of Christmas make me blush.
The scotches of deeper winter
Blur me beside a friend’s small fire.
The rivering sunlight lagers of spring
Pour a lazy hour in the breeze.
The juniper daze of gins bring
Summer, and its long, sad light.
