Purple, Princely, Profuse
Propagated around the world;
This plant gives us sweet deep red juice,
Rosy wine, table grapes, raisins, jellies and jams.
Even the seed's oil is curative and good;
Leaves for wrapping, cooking, pickling
Vines for wicker baskets.
Plant that replants itself
Spreads clinging with woody tendrils
Shies back in the winter
Springs up in the first days of summer
A gift from God
A wonderful plentiful plant 
Created for folks who complain 
Whine and beg for things,
Who want more and more
Isn't it enough that there are grape vines?
