Poem 10 (J 608: 1862/1890)

Afraid! Of whom am I afraid?
Not death--for who is He?
The Porter of my father's Lodge
As much abasheth me!

Of Life? "Twere odd fear thing
That comprehendeth me

Of Resurrection? Is the East?
Afraid to trust the Morn
With her fastidious forehead?
As soon impeach my Crown!
