“Hope” is the thing with feathers – Emily Dickinson

IMG_2662sgsmExposition au Château d'Annecy - 2014  

“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.

"L'espoir" est cette chose à plumes –
Qui se perche dans l'âme –
Et chante la mélodie sans mots –
Sans jamais cesser –

Elle est à son plus doux - dans la tempête –
Et bien violent doit être le vent –
Qui pourrait intimider le petit Oiseau
Qui en a gardé tant au chaud –

Je l'ai entendu dans les pays les plus froids -
Et sur la Mer la plus étrange –
Pourtant - jamais – à la dernière extrémité,
Il ne m’a demandé une miette.

Do you know where you are going to?

“Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)”

Link to the song at the end of the text

Do you know where you're going to
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to
Do you know

Do you get
What you're hoping for
When you look behind you
There's no open doors
What are you hoping for
Do you know

Once we were standing still in time
Chasing the fantasies
That filled our minds
You knew how I loved you
But my spirit was free
Laughin' at the questions
That you once asked of me

Do you know where you're going to
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to
Do you know

Now looking back at all we've planned
We let so many dreams
Just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long
Before we'll see
How sad the answers
To those questions can be

Do you know where you're going to
Do you like the things that life is showing you
Where are you going to
Do you know

Do you get
What you're hoping for
When you look behind you
There's no open doors
What are you hoping for
Do you know
