I entitled this piece of art “Hope is the Thing with Feathers” in honor to the poem by Emily Dickinson. I borrowed the poem’s name and painted inspired by it’s words. Hope I made the poem justice. Hope to keep alive my hopes.
Below the poem for your enjoyment.
“Hope” is the thing with feathers
“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 –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
