Rating: 3.2
AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.

Carefully gone line by line and within words..all readers and those commented overlooked the essence of this poem this poem is about death and separation - (AT last she comes, O never more, In this dear patience of my pain..Poet expected death whereas he already suffering the separation patiently) and the part of the poem - (To leave me lonely as before, Or leave my soul alone again. Here poet said I will be alone in my grave and by this way soul will be without body) interesting just now came in my mind Body and soul here treated as wife and husband..initially a separation and finally a separation either way...fantastic poem and can't be written further so beautiful my humble request to readers please clear your mind and re read thank you

It's short and deeply reflecting what happens when you love one who hurts you. A great short piece, some of you critics can't even come up with two meaningful line, you'll need to explain your poems like short stories. Get a life and appreciate good art.

Stevenson masterfully utilizes enjambment to pack intense feelings into one sentence.
