Why Do They Shut Me Out of Heaven?

poem 248

Why do they shut Me out of Heaven? Did I sing too loud? But I can say a little ‘Minor’ Timid as a Bird! Wouldn’t the Angels try me Just once more Just see if I troubled them But don’t shut the door! Oh, if I were the Gentleman In the ‘White Robe’ And they were the little Hand that knocked Could I forbid?
