Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 282
Just so - Jesus - raps -
He - does'nt weary -
Last - at the Knocker -
And first - at the Bell.
Then - on divinest tiptoe - 
standing -
Might He but spy the 
lady's soul -
When He - retires -
Chilled - or - weary -
It will be ample time 
for - me -
Patient - upon the steps -
until then -
Heart! I am knocking - low at thee.
