Here you will find the Poem I Am Athirst, But Not For Wine of poet Mathilde Blind
I am athirst, but not for wine; The drink I long for is divine, Poured only from your eyes in mine. I hunger, but the bread I want, Of which my blood and brain are scant, Is your sweet speech, for which I pant. I am a-cold, and lagging lame, Life creeps along my languid frame; Your love would fan it into flame. Heaven's in that little word--your love! It makes my heart coo like a dove, My tears fall as I think thereof.
