Thursday Quote Du Jour #5 on Hope

by Janie Jones

I have this short piece of prose (or does this count as poetry?  I so couldn’t tell you) on a beautiful print hanging on my living room wall.

Hope is a thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune

Without the words

And never stops at all.

-Emily Dickenson

I don’t know why I like it so well.  Maybe it has to do with the picture it is printed on.  Or maybe just because it seems, well, so hopeful.

  1. It is really hopeful, isn’t it?
    Which is pretty amazing coming from Emily.
