Winter Feathers

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 ~

Although the sun's heat is far away
The little birds that flit through the coldest days of winter
Keep me happy and warm.
