    Hope Is The Thing With Feathers
    by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    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.
