Stop Button Clutter!
Sonnet Upon God, The Wine Giver
Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953), British poet

Thought Man made wine, I think God made it, too;

God making all things, made Man, made good wine.
He taught him how the little tendrils twine
About the stakes of labor close and true.
Then next, with intimate prophetic laughter,
He taught the Man, in His own image blest,
To pluck and wagon and to – all the rest!
To tread the grape and work his vintage after.
So did God make us, making good wine makers;
So did He order us to rule the field
And now by God are we not only bakers;
But winners also sacraments to yield;
Yet most of all strong lovers, Praised be God!
Who taught us how the wine-press should be
trod!


 from Verses (1916)
