Passion Is the Wine, and Love, the Glass

Passion is the wine, and love, the glass,
As ritual reserves the times for drinking.
So life gathers dignity and mass,
Sustained by scripts that free the mind for thinking.
Our love waits upon the white-robed table.
Vintage holy fills our hearts with joy.
Elijah comes, that wanderer of fable,
Restoring what the wide world would destroy.
