Artist's Description

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches on the wall,
And waits for breakfast to drop dead,
And never blinks at all,

And rotting in the sun is smelled;
And still must be the form
That interests the hopeful bird
Competing with the worm.

When I am stretched upon the sand,
Discarded old debris,
Then comes that feathered hopeful thing
To scatter crumbs of me.
