The Name “Midnight’s Promise”

The name “Midnight’s Promise” comes from a poem by John Donne, (see below) the 17th-century English poet who penned sensual entreaties to his mistresses. It also refers to the fact that grape harvesting is often done during the evening, due to the Hunter Valley late summer hot weather, which can spoil the grapes.

Love’s Usury – Poem by John Donne

For every hour that thou wilt spare me now,
I will allow,
Usurious God of Love, twenty to thee,
When with my brown, my grey hairs equal be;
Till then, Love, let my body reign, and let
Me travel, sojourn, snatch, plot, have, forget,
Resume my last year’s relict: think that yet
We had never met.

Let me think any rival’s letter mine,
And at next nine
Keep midnight’s promise; mistake by the way
The maid, and tell the Lady of that delay;
Only let me love none, no, not the sport;
From country grass, to comfitures of Court,
Or city’s quelque-choses, let report
My mind transport.

This bargain’s good; if when I’am old, I be
Inflamed by thee,
If thine own honour, or my shame, or pain,
Thou covet, most at that age thou shalt gain.
Do thy will then, then subject and degree,
And fruit of love, Love, I submit to thee;
Spare me till then, I’ll bear it, though she be
One that loves me.

John Donne
