Country Love: a first attempt at anacreontic poetry (NaPoWriMo 4/11/2014)

*While researching anacreontic poetry, I noticed that some English drinking forms were written in quatrains with two couplets, the last line used as the first line of the next stanza. I chose that form.

Country Lovers—my first attempt at anacreontic poetry

Bright green bottle full of wine,
Amber hued from gods divine,
Do your trick and have your way.
For love’s sake and mine, I say!

For love’s sake and mine, I say,
You will color sweet our day.
Bring us bliss of rare delight.
Long we love into the night!

Long we love into the night,
Caring not if wrong or right.
Swooning in our lovers’ bliss,
As we tumble kiss to kiss!

As we tumble kiss to kiss,
All the world we shall dismiss!
Lost in jumble, free of will,
Down some grassy country hill!

Down some grassy country hill,
To some stack where hay dos’t spill.
We feel like angels have sung,
Though we land in fresh cow dung!
