My Meager Vineyard
My meager vineyard on a handsome lake
is equal to my master vintner's care,
exquisite wine is what she yearns to make.

Last harvest caused our backs and arms to ache,
so this year we have found a crew to bare
my meager vineyard on a handsome lake.

My keen enologist will lie awake
surmising how this vintage will compare,
exquisite wine is what she yearns to make.

This special crop will refinance my stake,
and with the harvest done I can repair
my meager vineyard on a handsome lake.

She monitors the pressing and partakes
in recipes, composing with a flair-
exquisite wine is what she yearns to make.

Adept winemaker, risking no mistake,
distasteful grapes from here are largely rare,
my meager vineyard on a handsome lake.
Exquisite wine is what she yearns to make.

I love the layout of this poem! The repitition of the 'ake, 'are, 'ake sounds is very effect in capturing the reader.
