In The Fog

Poem By Giovanni Pascoli

'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.

This is a delightful piece of writing from the marvelous Emily Dickinson. This is not really a sonnet in the classical sense, I think. But, it's a thoroughly enjoyable poem.
It is really goood and it is short which is also fog

In the houses where one
still converses with neighbors
beside the fire; where already
the daughter-in-law brings to

Night-Blooming Jasmine

And the night-blooming flowers open,
open in the same hour I remember those I love.
In the middle of the viburnums
the twilight butterflies have appeared.

Xxiv. Calypso

And the blue sea loved him, swept him
far out for nine days and nights,
swept him to a distant island,
to the cave covered with leaves

Xxiii. The Truth

And there was a flowering garden in the sea,
in a sea glossy as the sky; and a song
of two Sirens did not resound yet,
because the meadow was distant.
