Hope...

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~
