Hope

May 15, 2019

Because I always feel a deep sense of hope and renewal each spring, I share this poem with you.

 

“Hope” is the thing with feathers

 

“Hope “is the thing with feathers -

That perches on the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

 

And sweetest – in the Gale is heard –

And sore must be the storm –

 

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm –

 

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –

And on the strangest Sea –

Yet – never – in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of me.

 

~ Emily Dickinson
