In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re concluding our series on Life, Eternity, and Hope using selections from the reclusive American poet Emily Dickinson. Today we’re reading “Hope is the thing with feathers.”
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.
