Hope is a 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 coul abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

               Emily Dickenson from « Home is the thing with feathers »

I’m Nobody! Who are you?

Aug 18
2014

I am nobody ! Who are you ?

Are you nobody, too ?

Then there’s a pair of us – don’t tell !

They’d banish us, you know.

 

How dreary to be somebody !

How public, like a frog

To tell your name the livelong day

To an admiring bog ! – Emily Dickenson

Bois de Boulogne, reflets                                                     /Bois de Boulogne, Paris/

There is no frigate like a book

To take us lands away,

Nor any coursers like a page

Of prancing poetry.

This traverse may the poorest take

Without oppress of toll.

How frugal is the chariot

That bears a human soul ! – Emily Dickinson
