By Any Other Name

Ruby red lips are
Speaking and yet
I do not hear
With but my heart
As I watch you
Partake of
The crimson grape
So rich in body
So pungent
In taste and aroma
I tremble as you
Lift the glass to
Your lips
The rich vermillion
Touches skin so soft
So fragrant
That the battle
Of the rose is short
And yet so sweet.
