Poems About Hope - Hope Poems

Even in our darkest times, we know that hope
will one day return to us.

These poems about hope revive our belief in life
and its great promise: that we can do and be all that
we are meant to.

In a time of destruction,
create something.

Best Of Now - John Greenleaf Whittier

No longer forward
Nor behind
I look in hope and fear;
But grateful
Take the good I find
The best of now and here.


First Fig - Edna St. Vincent Millay

My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-
It gives a lovely light.


The Hour - Hopi Elder

You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.
And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.

It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those
Who will be afraid.
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart
And they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
Push off into the middle of the river,
Keep our eyes open and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do,
Our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over.

Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in Celebration.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Climb - John Muir

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you
as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness
into you,
And the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off
like autumn leaves.


What I Live For - George Linnaeus Banks

I live for those who love me,
For those who know me true,
For the Heaven that smiles above me,
And awaits my spirit too;
For the cause that lacks assistance,
For the wrong that needs resistance,
For the future in the distance,
And the good that I can do.

This poem is almost like a blessing, full of inspiration and hope for
all that is new and free.

     Praise Be - Bill Drayton

     Praise be for new things,
to make us uncomfortably curious,
     with innocent wonder
  and excitement in the beauty
     of the unconventional.

     Praise be for new waves,
   breaking on an open shore,
          to run around us
    in secret, childlike laughter,
    as we savour the pleasure.

 Praise be for all that is unbound,
            free and light,
          for we live there,
      without strain or stress,
        moving ever onward
to seek and find what we know is ours.


Hope Is The Thing With Feathers - Emily Dickinson Poem

One of the most famous poems about hope ever written.

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.
