Half a Glass


 Half A Glass


Half a glass  

         is better than none

         if you thirst for the best of champagne.


And I always see you as

         my glass half full

         instead of half empty.        


The half glass allows

         the bubble to rise

         and pop behind a reflecting wall.


Without the half glass

         how could you dream

         of the full glass?


It seems to me that

         half a glass and a dream

         is better than just a glass of Champagne


Please do not ask me

         if I would have preferred

         the whole bottle half a glass at a time.
