Should You Happen By

Should you happen by on a day
Of this sort, without prospects,
Do come with a bottle of spirits
With which we can toast the few
Things which sustain us, the furnace,
Of course, and the wood burning
Stove, the leftover roast beef
And dense whole-grain bread,
And the spirits themselves, which,
No doubt, would distract us
From thoughts of a prospect-less

I liked this - a mellow mood well expressed. and I might be biased - we had friends over last night and the evening finished with a good scotch.

Sounds like a cosy party or two(?) Sustaining the spirit(s) in these bleak times.
