“Hope”

So going with my theme lately, I thought it was a good time to add this poem by Emily Dickinson. I love so many of her poems! May your hope and trust in God sustain you through difficult times . . .

“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
