Bridge

Faith — is the Pierless Bridge

Supporting what We see

Unto the Scene that We do not —

Too slender for the eye

It bears the Soul as bold

As it were rocked in Steel

With Arms of Steel at either side —

It joins — behind the Veil

To what, could We presume

The Bridge would cease to be

To Our far, vacillating Feet

A first Necessity.

 

 Emily Dickinson

Poem: 915. Faith — is the Pierless Bridge
