Happy Valentine's Day

A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread—and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness—
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!
     Omar Khayyám (1048–1131; Persian: ‏عمر خیام)

from the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam, Translated by Edward FitzGerald

Beautiful photograph Dutchbaby and fantastic sentiment to match!!
Is that a napkin under the cork? As the cork appears to be beveled at the base.

Hope YOU and yours had a happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you everyone, for your lovely comments. As for the wine, George, it's long gone. There were eight of us around this table. It was the first night of one of my book club's annual adventures. This time it was in Point Reyes Station, CA.
