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.

~Emily Dickenson~

I was at work on a break reading a Chicken Soup for the soul pet lover book and the first part of Emilys poem was in it. I have not been able to get it out of my head. I love my poetry, and love to read, so am always at peace when doing so. This little insert have however has gotten stuck, so simple and so true.... hope~~~
