Hope Is The Thing With Feathers - Poem 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 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 was in many respects a dark and Gothic poet. The more you study her, the more you see a cognitive genius thinking through complex issues with originality and insight. This poem on the bird of hope seems to be more optimistic than many of her works, but I think we should proceed with caution. Hope never stops at all and constantly sings to us but is it really just diverting us from things we don't want to think about. I think. It is important to notice what hope cannot achieve, and that is solving our problems. You need to probe the subtext of this poem to see it is positive than it seems. (Report) Reply

    I've heard it in the chillest land—
    And on the strangest Sea—
    Yet, never, in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb—of Me.
    Nice poem.
