Hope is the Thing With Feathers by Emily Dickinson
“Hope” is the thing with feathers —
That perches in 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.
This is a favorite of mine. 🙂
This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read. Thank you for sharing. I’m going to post this also (with a link here of course).
