Poem: Hope heals*

A poem after Emily Dickinson

'Hope is what makes us human' | Photo: banner made by the children of Dorking Meeting

Hope is a thing with feathers
Hope is trusting and believing
Hope is something that someone feels
Hope is thinking of sunshine when it’s a cold winter’s day and raining
Hope is what makes us human
Hope is a light
Hope is being determined and happy to do something
Hope is the light at the end of the tunnel
Hope is a house martin in acrobatic flight
Hope flows with all that stands for good
Hope is there
Hope is a fuzzy ball of ‘may get better’ after something bad happens
Hope is love
Hope is all
Hope is relaxing, being calm and accepting
And hope heals
