I taste a liquor never brewedI taste a liquor never brewed
From Tankards scooped in Pearl
Not all the Frankfurt Berries
Yield such an Alcohol!
Inebriate of air – am I,
And Debauchee of Dew,
Reeling, – through’ endless summer days,
From inns of molten Blue.
When “Landlords” turn the drunken Bee
Out of the Foxglove’s door,
When Butterflies renounce their “drams”,
I shall but drink the more!
Till Seraphs swing their snowy Hats,
And Saints – to windows run,
To see the little Tippler
Come staggering toward – Sun!
Thomas H. JohnsonPublished a complete collection of Dickinson
