Poem Analysis: Mood- inspiring,optimistic, solomn Tone-Earnest and reassuring Theme- Hope is frail, but strong. Hope in unselfish, brave, and ever present. Subject- The substance and characteristics of hope.Why I chose this poem: This poem reminds me that hope can be as small and fragile as a bird, and still survive and keep giving without asking for anything in return.

“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 BirdThat 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.
