While we were fearing it, it came-
But came with less of fear
Because that fearing it so long
Had almost made it fair-

There is a Fitting-a Dismay-
A Fitting-a Despair
'Tis harder knowing it is Due
Than knowing it is Here.

They Trying on the Utmost
The Morning it is new
Is Terribler than wearing it
A whole existence through.
