Poems in English

I taste a liquor never brewed

I taste a liquor never brewed

I taste a liquor never brewed
From Tankards scooped in Pearl
Not all the Vats upon the Rhine
Yield such an Alcohol!

Inebriate of Air am I
And Debauchee of Dew
Reeling thro 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
Leaning against the Sun



Poem I taste a liquor never brewed - Emily Dickinson
