This poem and many more of Emily's can be found within the novel Teach

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.

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
from us.
