EMILY DICKINSON ~ HOPE

in Poetry of Art by
george-frederick-watts-hope-79536

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 Dickinson ~ Hope

You will hear thunder and remember me, And think: she wanted storms.
