Hope” is the Thing with Feathers

Hope” is the Thing with Feathers By Emily Dickinson! As with many of her poems, Emily Dickinson takes a summery feeling or concept and likens it to something physical, visible, and tangible. So hope will become a singing bird. Hope, for Dickinson, sings its wordless tune and by no means stops singing it: nothing can faze it:

Hope” is the Thing with Feathers

‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
