Scrap That Poetry - Challenge # 7

This is my second challenge entry for the year, Jennifer Campbell has this great challenge site called 'Scrap That Poetry', so if you love poetry as much as I do then head on over and check it out.......

I am really happy with the way this layout turned out, and enjoyed every minute putting it together. From the little owl with Emily Dickenson's photo tucked under her wing, to my Niece Megan holding 'HOPE' above her head. Across the tree branch I have journaled....'shout it from the tree tops'.....very appropriate I would say.....

Challenge # 7 is the beautiful piece by Emily Dickenson called Hope.

by Emily Dickenson

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 heard;
and sore must be the storm
that could abash the little bird
that kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
and on the strangest sea;
Yet, never in extremity,
it asked a crumb of me.
