Transcript of English Segment 2 Collabortation

“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.

Hope is thing with Feathers
Look to this Day
Look to this day:
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendour of achievement
Are but experiences of time.

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived, makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day;
Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

Hope abides; therefore I abide.
Countless frustrations have not cowed me.
I am still alive, vibrant with life.
The black cloud will disappear,
The morning sun will appear once again
In all its supernal glory.

: Reassuring, respect, amazement
: Optimistic
: Hope is frail, but strong
: Made up of four quatrains; each quatrain follows similar rhyming pattern with 2nd and 4th line of each stanza rhyming; in second stanza the 1st and 3rd lines rhyme

: Throughout the poem, Dickenson uses imagery to compare hope to a bird. She paints hope as a bird on a perch constantly cheerfully chirping. Hope will always shine through with happiness and be there even in the darkest moments. She emphasizes the quality of comfort hope brings by juxtaposing the bird’s sweet song and its warmth created by the bird to the strong storm. Hope can show up in the most desperate situations, and it will never ask for anything in return. Although hope can be frail it can never be defeated, for it can survive any climate or “extremity”.

Analysis of Hope
By Lariscy Walker
Analysis of Look to this Day
The author puts life into a new positive perspective. Life is well worth living, and if one grips each day with hope and enthusiasm they will surely experience happiness and success. One should look towards each day as a chance to live life to the fullest. By taking advantage of every moment, there is a greater chance of achieving one’s goals. Hope can bring new experiences to try new things and grow from them.

: In similarity to Dickenson’s poem, hope is always there cheerfully brightening one’s day with optimism and assurance.

By Lariscy Walker
If one accepts hope then hope will accept them. Hope can protect one from frustrations and disappointments. By hoping for the better, the ‘black cloud’ of darkness will go away and bring the shining beautiful ‘sun’ of happiness again. Hope is like a ray of shine. It can shine through in your darkest moments and bring reassurance that everything will be okay.

: Just like Dickenson’s poem, hope can shine through with happiness even in the darkest moments.

By: Abdul Wahab
I would not deny
That I could not
Dream or swim
But it was in my dream
Slipped in a deep of ditch
My hands were tied
Legs were not working
I was drowning and drowning
From deep to deeper I felt
Suffocated and strangulated,
As I would not be alive, I would
Be dead, this gave me a cry!
I had had a strong desire to be alive!
A gust of energy in the form of help
Entered in me as if it was dragging me
With a help of a rope of hope
To the shore of life, I jerked in joy
I found myself alive and awake
I gave a big thank and a tight hug
To the rope of hope.

Analysis of Hope
By: Brooke Wixted
The poet uses strong emotion to grab your attention by saying hope is our strength. Hope is what keeps us going even if we are in the deepest pits of pain. This poem inspires people for that moment when you feel like giving up, to push harder and keep going. No matter what happens hope will always pull you through and help you see a new way. Never give up on life and try to see the best in your surroundings.

: Both Dickinson’s poem and Wahab’s poem give the central idea that hope is our strength and encourages us to never give up.

Spirit Strong
By: Erich Goller
Chosen words
That can interpret
The answer
For the guidance
To achieve
What is expected
With peace in the heart and mind

Thoughtful deeds
Freely impart
With blessings
Reaching out and
Rising above
The stepping stone
For a brighter tomorrow

Spirit strong
Finding the way
With patience
Through it we grow
Form day to day
On wings of prayer and love

Analysis of Spirit Strong
By: Brooke Wixted
Goller shared her inspiring wisdom about hope in this poem. She described hope as always being a positive way to go in life. Hope is up lifting and with hope anything is possible to conquer. By being kind and doing good deeds for others, you will have a better day tomorrow. In time with hope, everything will come together and work out. You have to be patience but God will provide and you will get stronger.

: Alike Dickinson’s poem, Goller used hope to inspire people and lift them up when feeling down.
