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

Emily distinguishes between spiritual and material reality. Both are valid domains, faith navigates the spiritual, but issues involvin the material world require material actions for success.

The first line of this very short poem is quite interesting. Emily Dickinson can be brief and right to the point

Very entertaining rhyme by the celebrated poet ‘laureatte’ possessed of depth and insight, the shallowness of reality to most. So fine the balance of faith and works, and many fail to grasp. Hence the quote marks.
