hope, pg. 14 & 15

   I found a red feather today right outside 
                                     the back door.

                          Mr. Cardinal's feather---

"Hope is a thing with feathers" popped
into my mind. I felt the Holy Spirit's

Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
  World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Lines of poetry from Emily Dickinson and God's Grandeur 
by Gerald Manley Hopkins

I've always loved Emily Dickinson. The sweet man who manages the library used bookstore says he'll put a copy of her poems on hold for me when one comes in, which it will. :)

Love to you, sweet one. :)

to turn right side up but it just wants to be
on its side!
