Spruce up your spring mantel or seasonal display with this lovely print, complete with birdies.

We have discussed my love of Emily Dickinson. Is using Emily for a child’s middle name overkill? “Hope” has been my favorite Emily Dickinson poem for years and years. I decided to create a print for my spring decorations, and I will share it here. It has a subdued color palette with green, blue, and purple, cute little birds, and a green vintage-looking wallpapery background.

This PDF file will print as a 6x8 and is suitable for framing.

“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, 1891
