Hope as a Feather

A cardinal feathered red 
Across a twilight sky,
My hope-center surged 
And lifted, amplified. 
Cardinal, Male Cardinal, Red Bird
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.          Emily Dickenson

    1. I especially like Patrick’s comments about Emily Dickenson. He is a big fan. I will have to look into more of her works. Hope as a feather truly speaks to me. I see white feathers everywhere I go. Even in my house.
