Poetry Wednesday--Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson's birthday was December 10th.  I think her "Hope is the thing with feathers" is an apt poem for the third week of Advent.

I thought I left a comment on this one. Perhaps it didn't go through. It is a great poem. I love the theme of HOPE.

I like, especially, that a child is the narrator here. Kind of goes with our art work for this week, too.

Dymphna, Thank you for posting this.
I guess other than hearing "Hope is a thing with feathers" I never heard or read the poem. It's lovely, so thanks again.

You're welcome. I love Emily Dickinson. She's one of my favorite poets.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
