"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

The Passing


You taught me Waiting with Myself —

Appointment strictly kept —

You taught me fortitude of Fate —

This — also — I have learnt —


An Altitude of Death, that could

No bitterer debar

Than Life — had done — before it –

Emily Dickinson
