You taught me Waiting with Myself

by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson


You taught me Waiting with Myself-
Appointment strictly kept-
You taught me fortitude of Fate-
This-also-I have learnt-

An Altitude of Death, that could
No bitterer debar
Than Life-had done-before it-
Yet-there is a Science more-

The Heaven you know-to understand
That you be not ashamed
Of Me-in Christ's bright Audience
Upon the further Hand-
