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
