Exhilaration - is within

by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson


Exhilaration - is within -
There can no Outer Wine
So royally intoxicate
As that diviner Brand

The Soul achieves - Herself -
To drink - or set away
For Visitor - Or Sacrament -
'Tis not of Holiday

To stimulate a Man
Who hath the Ample Rhine
Within his Closet - Best you can
Exhale in offering.
