I drank at every vine

Bit of an annoying, scattered and unfocused sort of a day..did find a great poem though, and this first, dreamy sign of Spring in the garden..




I drank at every vine.
The last was like the first.
I came upon no wine
So wonderful as thirst.

I gnawed at every root.
I ate of every plant.
I came upon no fruit
So wonderful as want.

Feed the grape and bean
To the vintner and monger:
I will lie down lean
With my thirst and my hunger.

Edna St. Vincent Millay


(Thanks to hungry sofia at her marvellous blogย for leading me to the poem!)
