Feathered Hope.

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 herd;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've herd it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
it asked a crumb of me.
       (Emily Dickinson)

You must forgive me, I seem to have
feathers stuck in my Camera.
God's Gifts, are better than
mans best dreams.
I must concentrate my gaze closer to the ground.

i like the little sparrow sharing the house with the cardinal. don't tell the little one it is not a pretty as the red one. I see a donkey or two in with the feathers in your camera.

Cardinals have such rich color and look so proud. You captured that so well!
