Wisdom from Emily Dickinson

Startling beauty of the mushroom

Startling beauty of the mushroom

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.

-Emily Dickinson

Hope

Hope is the thing with feathers . . .

Hope is the thing with feathers . . .

Today’s poet from Education for Justice is a favorite of many, Emily Dickinson.

Hope

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.
