Advent, the Third Day: Evan Williams Single Barrel


Dum ergo prope est…

When Evan Williams claimed Kentucky, settled
For bluegrass dew, and marshaled pioneer
Necessities – he mashed his corn and kettled
His fame for peasants, princes, damn well near
The world – at least those parts that had a liver.
Within the body militant, wherever
The jug was passed (but never passed by), there
The high command and rank and file would share
A pour of Bourbon County’s baptized product.
Today, the third of Advent, loyalty
Deploys this bottled sip, and royalty
Salutes with humble knee. Our seasoned project
Continues thus: the shepherd joins the king
Before a stable door to everything.
