WHO is the threshold waiting behind the door?
WHO seeks the footsteps of the bold to this door?

YOU! O YOU are the Great Key of all keys
To all things, all realms, all hearts, all doors.

YOU! YOU are the Great Lock of Mysteries:
One, opened by many keys, to all doors.

YOU! YOU are — THOU art? — the port of the heart;
YOUR Words and Messenger, the knob of the door.

YOU! I have gone senseless over the Largesse
Of the constant opening of YOUR door.

YOU! YOU are the First, Last, Beginning, End
Between, Behind, Before of every door.

AYE! I, seeking to seek, hoping to hope,
Am waiting to be shown my secret door.
