Regular readers will know that I’m a huge fan of metaphors. And even more so when a bird gets thrown into the mix.
So when I came across this classic poem from Emily Dickinson, based upon the image of ‘hope’ as a bird…. I had to share.
The last line is particularly lovely I think. Hope it always there, wherever you are, whatever is happening… and it never asks for anything in return.
“Hope” is the thing with feathers
by Emily Dickinson
