The Thing With Feathers

by on

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -

That perches in the soul -

And sings the tune without the words -

And never stops - at all -

Emily Dickinson

This is one stanza from a poem by Emily Dickinson. Isn’t it beauiful?

There’s also a book you might like that was inspired by this poem. It’s called Feathers and it was written by Jaqueline Woodson. It’s probably best for 5th graders and up. I read it a few years ago and loved it.
