Put a poet to work in a vineyard!

June 22, 2009

Gwendolyn Alley is Murphy-Goode http://www.areallygoodejob.com/video-view.aspx?vid=MEPRrfj1uHUPUT A POET TO WORK IN A VINEYARD!

Hi, I’m Gwendolyn Alley. I’m a blogger,
poet, multimedia journalist,
college teacher and I want Sonoma
County in my backyard so I can share
Murphy-Goode wine with the world as your
Wine Country Lifestyle correspondent!

My grandpa built this wine cellar and carved
this door.  I love the magic of wine with food.
I know these Murphy-Goode Alexander
Valley Cabernet Sauvignons will be
great with tonight’s tritip.

My grandpa taught me to respect nature,
the land, what grows there, what we make from it.
He also gave me a passion for challenge
and adventure. The world is my backyard.

I’m ready to grow in your backyard,
Murphy-Goode. Using all the cool social
media tools, I’ll share my adventures.
I’ll hike vineyards, discuss sustainability,
harvest grapes, taste barrel samples, and
enjoy wine with the Murphy-Goode family.

VOTE for Gwendolyn! She’s Murphy-Goode!

For the Monday Poetry Train, I turned my script for my video for the Murphy-Goode Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent blogging position into pentameter (at times, even iambic!) Go here for another poem about the same grandfather which I posted last year.

OK, my script may not be my best poem ever posted to this site, but please click on the link, watch my video, and vote for me by putting your email in the box even if it’s NOT my best poem! Don’t you think they should put a poet to work in the vineyard? Voting for this round closes on Friday when they will announce the Top 50 and voting opens up again. Thank you for your support!
