_to write darkness

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell. _c.s. lewis

“Hope” is the thing with feathers-

Posted by abramjanson on February 26, 2009

Week #2 of the Emily Dickinson Hour of Poetry: Get cultured.

 

“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 keeps 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.

 

traveling mercies.
