Grapes for Bacchus
Since there's so small difference 'twixt drowning and drinking,
We'll tipple and pray, too, like mariners sinking;
Whilst they drink salt water, we'll pledge 'em in wine,
And pay our devotion at Bacchus's shrine:
Oh! Bacchus, great Bacchus, for ever defend us,
And plentiful store of good Burgundy send us.
Grapes for Bacchus by Thomas van der Krogt is a miniature drypoint by the resplendent Thomas van der Krogt. Thomas used a la poupee inking to create the evocative multi-color image.
