            HOPE

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without 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 lands –
And on the strangest sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity –
It asked a crumb – of me
Emily Dickinson

It is one of discovery of the hard realities of nature within the powerful beauty of her pristine face, and a reminder of how much we lose when we lose sight of her. It is a lesson in the awesome and the sublime, and it, conversely teaches us the limits of civilization, and the losses we incur when we trade the awesome and sublime for the comfortable.
