Hope 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 --
Photo by Bruce Barone.
And sweetest -- in the Gale -- is heard --
And sore must be the storm --
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm --
Photo by Bruce Barone.
I've heard it in the chillest land --
And on the strangest Sea --
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb -- of Me.
