In an Emergency.

    This poem is about faith as an invention. Both the word and the practuce come out of ancient minds. (Report) Reply

    I think i read this poem simpler. It to me contrasts and places faith as a luxury when circumstances allow, while a microscopes (a stand-in for practical knowledge) is necessary when the circumstances are pressing. This is possibly a reaction to Emily Dickinson's experience of religious teaching of her time. Her sense of God and divine did not conform to the constricts and prattling of her time, and certainly we see similar stuff today. (Report) Reply

    If faith be an invention and not a natural trait....then it should be cautious like the prudent microscope in an emergency....a truth expressed in a witty way (Report) Reply
