Wine Dark Sea (Cellar Door poem)

To get the wine
That swells with time
We must ignore
The cellar door

To taste the ships
Upon our lips
The cellar door
Must be ajar

Editing stage: 


did it by habit and checked the N/A box without thinking! Oh well, this is a critique of this poem. The title is catchy and drew me in right away. Language okay, the rhythm of it seemed like waves and the theme of wine being a dark sea, pretty good. I like that you ended it with a play of word. ~ Geezer.
