From this instant I shall no longer
Consider myself alone.
I shall be confident, yet unconfiding.
I shall be sure and secure.
I shall take lightly the things I would most consider,
For I have learned, I have learned
But an instant agone, that I am but
An atom of a greater self.
Yea, and in this knowledge have I shrunk,
Yet become more confident---
Since knowing mine own dimensions I
May set me then a measure not distorted.
