Emily Dickinson - Afraid!  Of whom am I afraid?

Afraid!  Of whom am I afraid?
Not Death -- for who is He?
The Porter of my Father's Lodge
As much abasheth me!

Of Life?  'Twere odd I fear [a] thing
That comprehendeth me
In one or two existences --
As Deity decree --

Of Resurrection?  Is the East
Afraid to trust the Morn
With her fastidious forehead?
As soon impeach my Crown!
