The Flavour of Bailey's Irish Cream

The flavour of Bailey’s Irish Cream: mellow with a tang ...
(The slim bottle is black, with a red label.
Surely those back-to-back gold initials are new?
I don’t remember them. But then, it’s a long time
since I’ve had a glass of Bailey’s — before tonight, that is.

(It came in a box with two glasses —
heavy-bottomed glasses
with curved sides for the grasp of a hand.
They too have those initials, back-to-back B B.
And they have gold rims.

(At the moment one glass is clean,
the other is buttery golden from my drink.
How good if I had someone to share
my gift bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream.
But alone is good too.) ... white fire, yet subtle.

  1. It is nice to sit down together ideally! But being alone can still be cool for inspiring good ideas. Nicely penned Rosemary! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you Ma'am!
