Every year as the holidays near,
I receive a query thus:
“What vinous imbibe will thirst abide
Thanksgiving, the New Year and Christmas?”
As holidays approach, this subject I broach
With abundant holiday cheer!
In such a quander my mind did wander
When conclusion came perfectly clear.
What wines do most expressly claim,
Their favorite quaff, particularly by name?
Their favorites roll off their tounges like rain,
Veuve Clicquot, Perrier-Jouet
Krug, Salon, Laurent-Perrier.
So this holiday season greet the morn
With ethereal bubbles and pajamas so warm
And all roused from sleep will wake with a smile
As you savor and pause to ponder a while.
You say to yourself,
“Why didn’t I do this last year?”
With warmest holiday wishes, Curt Christiansen
