Hey there good people of earth, welcome, welcome.
I’m now moving on up to Day 5 of NanoPoblano and nothing can stop me!
(Actually, the previous poem slowed me down quite a bit, due to the sheer volume of reading that I had to do to complete it but then it did allow me to write a fantastic poem that I am very proud of, so I’m not really complaining!)
For tonight’s entertainment, I have written a found poem inspired by the iconic and witty poet Emily Dickinson and her popular poem “Hope” is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson at EmilyDickinson.net.
I have also posted the lyrics below for convenience.
“Hope” is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson
“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.
And now here is my found poem based on Emily’s little ditty – I do hope you enjoy it!

“The Sweetest Tune In The Land” by David Ellis
Is the thing that the soul sings
The tune without words
Never stops, sweetest
The storm that kept so many warm
In the land and on the sea
Yet never it asked a crumb of me
