art Grape Vine de Porto was inspired by the grapes growing in the Durro Valley of Portugal during a painting trip in October 1996. It was painted on the grounds of the Quinta De Cumbre.

Music: Maio

Grape Vine de Porto

Hung preciously from the autumn colored vine
Grapes the size of thumbs, soon to be wine
The ripeness of color an invitation to dine

Sugar-sweet they explode their deep velvet taste
A crushed mouthful, not a drop to waste
Savored slowly, lingeringly, with the opposite of haste
