Should the Wide World Roll Away

Original Text: 
Stephen Crane, The Black Riders and Other Lines (1900).
1Should the wide world roll away
2Leaving black terror
3Limitless night,
4Nor God, nor man, nor place to stand
5Would be to me essential
6If thou and thy white arms were there
7And the fall to doom a long way.
