Trust in the Unexpected

Trust in the Unexpected

Trust in the Unexpected
By this was William Kidd
Persuaded of the Buried Gold
As One had testified

Through this the old Philosopher
His Talismanic Stone
Discerned still withholden
To effort undivine

‘Twas this allured Columbus
When Genoa withdrew
Before an Apparition
Baptized America

The Same afflicted Thomas
When Deity assured
‘Twas better the perceiving not
Provided it believed



Poem Trust in the Unexpected - Emily Dickinson
