Emily Dickinson - Heaven is so far of the Mind

Heaven is so far of the Mind
That were the Mind dissolved --
The Site -- of it -- by Architect
Could not again be proved --

'Tis vast -- as our Capacity --
As fair -- as our idea --
To Him of adequate desire
No further 'tis, than Here --

Heaven (or, spiritual things) is close and familiar to the person truly wanting to know about it but far away and incomprehensible to others.
