Sweet Days of Summer

Emily Dickinson~
.
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, 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
Leaning against the sun!
