Emily Dickinson
We thirst at first--'tis Nature's Act--
printer friendly version
We thirst at first -- 'tis Nature's Act --
And later -- when we die --
A little Water supplicate --
Of fingers going by --

It intimates the finer want --
Whose adequate supply
Is that Great Water in the West --
Termed Immortality --
