Emily Dickinson: Hope is the Thing with Feathers – Poems for Kids, FreeSchool


You’re watching FreeSchool! (bird chirping) “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.
