Weekend Reads: I've heard it in the chillest land and on the strangest sea

For some reason, maybe it's the blue sky, maybe it's the impending weekend, I'm in a hopeful mood today. Emily Dickinson's poem Hope is a Thing With Feathers stuck with me after a friend posted an impassioned status on Facebook. I keep coming back to it and gaining hope and inspiration from it. I hope you do, too.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers - (314)

“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.
