Thirsty for years

Thirst bucket in arrears

Throat fully parched

Fresh water appears 

Neck clearly arched

Gazing at the tall glass

Glass Buff and smooth

Inching forward 


Makes the first move

Pulling ever closer

Glass to full lips

Cashing in her chips

Diving in head first

Drinking her fill 


Her thirst
