"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."

Tenor: Hope

Vehicle: Bird
