"While We Were Fearing It, It Came" by Emily Dickinson

While We Were Fearing It, It Came
by Emily Dickinson

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.

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