    I Taste A Liquor Never Brewed
    by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    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 —
