A narrow Fellow in the Grass

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

But never met this Fellow
Attended, or alone
Without a tighter breathing
And Zero at the Bone— (21-24)

How would you feel if you came face to face with the devil himself? We hope never to find out, but we can guess that "Zero at the Bone" is a pretty good way of describing such horror.
