Hope is the thing with feathers

By Emily Dickinson

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

and sings the tune without the words

And never stops - at all....

Glen says that bird could be a purple martin. (Male purple martins are iridescent and dark blue-purple overall. Females are lighter with white or brown under feathers.)
