Hope is the thing with feathers

Andrew has a keen interest in all aspects of poetry and writes extensively on the subject. His poems are published online and in print. An extended metaphor, it likens the concept of hope to a feathered bird that is permanently perched in the soul of every human. There it sings, never stopping in its quest to inspire. Emily Dickinson wrote this poem in , a prolific year for her poetry, one of nearly poems she penned during her lifetime. Only seven of these were published while she was still alive. Her sister Lavinia collected and helped publish all of her poems after Emily's death in The Belle of Amherst, so called, remains an enigma. Her poetry was highly original but was dismissed or simply misunderstood when she sent her work out for appraisal or publication. It was only after she had passed away and her poems circulated more widely that critics began to appreciate her genius.

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. National Poetry Month. Materials for Teachers Teach This Poem. Poems for Kids.

With most countries under strict lockdown and the global economy sliding towards a worldwide recession, with so many people sick or starving or both, times like these make it difficult to even muster a sliver of hope. And yet these are the moments when we need hope the most. Hope is what will make it possible for us to put one foot in front of the other, to persevere and stand resilient in the face of utter chaos and uncertainty. So today, I would like to write about Hope. And sweetest — in the Gale — is heard — And sore must be the storm — That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm —. The poet was a maverick. At a time when her contemporaries were throwing themselves into creating lengthy, grand, and dramatic pieces—Dickinson pared down her details without sacrificing her message and metaphors. She also had no qualms playing around with punctuations and capitalizations—as you no doubt saw in her poem above. She is simply narrating, stating facts.
