Homework Help: English

Posted by Lucy on Saturday, January 19, 2008 at 4:02pm.

My assignment is to write an exlpication of a peom by emily dickinson. The poem is:

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.

I have never done this before and I haven't a clue how to begin. Any help?
