Commandaria

The seeds had been found in an earthen jar,
Buried for saving, centuries ago.
Even the wearing of time could not mar
The vineyards that would eventually grow.
From this ancient grape a new production
Brought back to the world the sweetest nectar,
Recalling an old epic seduction
Of Odysseus’s long adventure.
Legend even tells of lion hearted
Royalty praising the drink’s great value.
From Earth, the recipe never parted
As stories of it glory only grew.
It is the reason for this aria
That we will sing for Commandaria.
