  • Of a Sister
  • Pete Wolf Smith (bio)

A dowser, she was. Thirsty,we went, or drank from brackish cisterns, for want of her.

Would squat on her haunches, spiton her hands, rub them together and spread them on the air; and indicate a place, no different, to my eye, than any other, and say, There.

Pete Wolf Smith
