Feathers - Poem by Leslie Ching
Hope might be the thing with feathers*
But of virtue it's not the only thing-
Strength would have eagle's claws,
Love would possess angle's wings-
Respect, a humble and bowed head
Courage, a heart made of steel
Truth, a clear and golden eye
Sympathy, hands to heal
Beauty, a sea-green peakcock's tail
Liberation with her torch held high**
Joy always has the fairest face
Faith with Constance rule the sky...
*Read Emily Dickinson's 'Hope is the Thing With Feathers'
**Based on the Statue of Liberty in New York, U.S.A.
