Emily Dickinson - Just so -- Jesus -- raps

Just so -- Jesus -- raps --
He -- doesn't weary --
Last -- at the Knocker --
And first -- at the Bell.
Then -- on divinest tiptoe -- standing --
Might He but spy the lady's soul --
When He -- retires --
Chilled -- or weary --
It will be ample time for -- me --
Patient -- upon the steps -- until then --
Hears!  I am knocking -- low at thee.

I disagree. I think she knows his patience with her; she says "I am knocking low at thee", meaning (I suspect) "I also knock at you, down here (low) where others do not.

I think she is asking for patience, but not asking Him to go away.

Jesus calls me, but I am not going to Him the standard way, and I am going on my own time, if at all.
