“Hope is the thing with feathers”, by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886), was written in 1861 and first published in 1891. The text presents hope as a quality that shines even throughout adversity and that only hope can help us to remain positive during extreme situations.
Dickinson described hope as a bird that “perches in the soul.” The bird's song “never stops,” even when life is difficult. The poem suggests that it is hope's presence that keeps each individual moving forward in the face of adversity.
Hope is everlasting, ever shining and undefeatable. It liberates us from despair and gives us the strength to move on.
It only empowers us and in return demands nothing.
“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.
