W B Yeats, Trelissick Gardens and Chocolate

It’s Valentine’s Day today and we both liked this brief poem called ‘A Drinking Song’ by W B Yeats that we heard on the radio this morning:

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.


Our lovely Son-in-law doesn’t do Valentine’s Day! He says every day is Valentine’s in their house and we have adopted the same saying! I did get us a tiny heart shaped tin of chocolates to share.(It really is tiny despite the photo!)   Later in the afternoon we had a walk around Trelissick Gardens which was lovely. Do join us!
