Stanzas In Meditation: Stanza LXXXIII


Why am I if I am uncertain reasons may inclose.
Remain remain propose repose chose.
I call carelessly that the door is open
Which if they may refuse to open

Let them be mine therefor.
Everybody knows that I chose.

Because I am coming.
Certainly I come having come.
These stanzas are done.
