Poems in English

You taught me Waiting with Myself

You taught me Waiting with Myself

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
