Feed the birds

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.

As a child I remember, my "Daddy" would always make sure the birds were fed and I have tried to carry on his loving tradition.

What a beautiful illustration of hope. Really lovely! (I'm "hearing" Feed the Birds, from "May Poppins" even as we speak!) Have a Grand Day! Cathy

Feeding birds and feeding hopes - I like that.
