    NEVER ADD DASHES... Because the AUTO-READER says DASH in mid prose, every every single time you inserted it! RUINING THE POETRY FOR THE BLIND patrons of the ARTS! ! ! (Report) Reply

    I have heard it in the chillest land-
    And on the strangest sea-
    Yet, never in Extremity
    It asked a crumb-of Me- - Hope gives you light in the toughest situations.We derive strength from Hope, but Hope never demands anything from us in return.- - - - - -Beautiful poem.
