Emily Dickinson - I rose -- because He sank --

I rose -- because He sank --
I thought it would be opposite --
But when his power dropped --
My Soul grew straight.

I cheered my fainting Prince --
I sang firm -- even -- Chants --
I helped his Film -- with Hymn --

And when the Dews drew off
That held his Forehead stiff --
I met him --
Balm to Balm --

I told him Best -- must pass
Through this low Arch of Flesh --
No Casque so brave
It spurn the Grave --

I told him Worlds I knew
Where Emperors grew --
Who recollected us
If we were true --

And so with Thews of Hymn --
And Sinew from within --
And ways I knew not that I knew -- till then --
I lifted Him --
