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
Discernéd-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-
