Hope is not the creature of sensation.
A miracle's the work of only days.
Nor can faith be founded on conviction
Unsustained by ritual and art.
Knowledge of the senses is creation
Kindled by a truth that sense betrays,
As faith emerges whole from ancient fiction,
Holding quiet commerce with the heart.
