I SHALL KNOW WHY, WHEN TIME IS OVER, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: That scalds me now that scalds me now!
Subject(s): Jesus Christ - Suffering & Sacrifice; Peter, Saint (C. 64 A.d.)


I shall know why - when Time is over -

And I have ceased to wonder why -

Christ will explain each separate anguish

In the fair schoolroom of the sky -




He will tell me what "Peter" promised -

And I - for wonder at his woe -
I shall forget the drop of Anguish

That scalds me now - that scalds me now!
