BREAD AND WINE, by                    
First Line: All day work in the shops
Last Line: And this is wine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Cutter, Elizabeth Reeve
Subject(s): Drinks & Drinking; Labor & Laborers; Wine; Work; Workers

ALL day work in the shops,
The weary tread
Of toil that knows no change,
And this is bread.

At night when work is done,
Her hand in mine,
The hope of happier days,
And this is wine.
