"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.

Faith Microscopes are prudent In an Emergency...............great intellectual writings great 10+++++++++++++++++
Very wittily put in a four-liner. One sees what to others defies, the other, what is beyond eyes.
A profound yet intriguing four liner narrating the limitations faced by faith.
When Gentlemen Can See! ! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Faith goes beyond seeing and thinking! For this very reason one has difficulty to convince others of this fine invention. Very skillfully Emily has put two contradictory thoughts together. To know is to believe but to believe is to know.
