Analysis and comments on Just so -- Jesus -- raps by Emily Dickinson

Comment 2 of 2, added on May 21st, 2011 at 6:40 PM.

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.
