“Madeira Under The Vine”

Three men escape the hot Madeira midday sun
Away from home and work in heaven having fun
This simple retreat is a world they own
Humble and so relaxed seated on stone
I stumble on their vineyard shack
Jester a hello they smile back
Flat caps beckon me to have a drink
No English is spoken yet they want to know what I think
After a long morning walk I’m happy sharing their shade
Pure simple wine flows from vines planted by spade
I take a snap as my glass is filled with local wine
Magic contentment filters from grapes under the vine
Time capsules buried deep in your mind
Remember strangers can be so kind
