Written in 1967 after the birth of our son.


WHAT MORE CAN MAN DESIRE?

A glass of wine,
a lover in his bed,
beauty to gaze upon or in its stead
dreams of fine porcelain;
of summer flowers.
What more can man desire ?
Save for a son,
To carry on when
His life's work is done,
To savour once again the joys he knew;
WINE,
LOVE and
BEAUTY;
Just to name a few.
