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.

    Hope… as you show… swirls, even through its frustration in finding a safe perch. Which leaves us wondering if it is hope or perch which may sometimes…. disappoint.

    Happy New Year…

  • Yes, Ted think it is both.
