Poems in English

He ate and drank the precious Words

He ate and drank the precious Words

He ate and drank the precious Words
His Spirit grew robust
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was Dust

He danced along the dingy Days
And this Bequest of Wings
Was but a Book What Liberty
A loosened spirit brings



Poem He ate and drank the precious Words - Emily Dickinson
