Angi Orton: teacher and friend

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- thro endless summer days-
From inns of Molten Blue-

When ‘Landlords’ turn the drunken Bee
Out of the Foxgloves door-
When Butterflies- renounces 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-

Emily Dickinson


About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
