Hope for a New Year

by Melissa Harding

A new year gives us all a chance to start over and to hope for better things. The old year is gone and with it both the good and bad that it brought. We all have another chance to be great and do wonderful things for each other and the world around us. Let us celebrate the coming year with hope and joy!

“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.

Emily Dickinson
