Hope is the Thing with Feathers (excerpt)

by Emily Dickinson

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words ,
And never stops at all…
*******
AND FOR A DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT:
“How wrong Emily Dickinson was! Hope is not ‘the thing with feathers.’ The thing with feathers has turned out to be my nephew. I must take him to a specialist in Zurich.” From Without Feathers by WOODY ALLEN
