I think that this poem really describes hope in a good way and that hope
will never leave us, even when we think it has. We just have to believe.

happened in my life! and the people i knew and loved that died from suicide

hopeful as i am today

i love this poem. It's in my favorite poem book. I have repeated this many
times to myself when my health or my family's or situations are not good.
It's saved me from depression and despair. I am putting this on a card to
accompany a figurine of Hope I'm sending to my sister who has recently been
diagnosed with Cancer

How wrong Emily Dickinson was! Hope is not "the thing with feathers." The
thing with feathers has turned out to be my nephew. I must take him to a
specialist in Zurich.

This poem is nothing short of amazing. We take hope for granted and it
keeps us alive and going and she points out that it never asks anything

I really like this poem. It gives me the will to go on when things get bad.
I also read it when I need inspiration for a poem of my own. The poem Ms.
Dickinson inspired is the following couplet:
Back and forth, the waves will go
Where the lead, I do not know
