Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Five: The Single Hound

CXXXVII


JUST so, Jesus raps—He does not weary—
Last at the knocker and first at the bell,
Then on divinest tiptoe standing
Might He out-spy the lady’s soul.
When He retires, chilled and weary—        5
It will be ample time for me;
Patient, upon the steps, until then—
Heart, I am knocking low at Thee!
