"Faith" Is A Fine Invention


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

This poem may be short, but it is really good, I think. I always loved poems, you know.
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.
