- Rabindranath Tagore
"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 kept so many warm
I've heard it in the chilliest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb of Me.

himself? Do we hope for this, or for something less demanding?
